Former Knox County Trustee John Duncan III is running his dad’s congressional campaign. He recently organized a hugely successful fund-raiser at the Pete DeBusk estate for Congressman Jimmy Duncan.
Campaign reports show that through May the campaign has paid him $21,000. Young Duncan left the trustee’s office last year after pleading guilty to awarding unearned bonuses to himself and others.
DeBusk is a huge financial supporter of Lincoln Memorial University, where Lynn (Mrs. Jimmy) Duncan works and the school named its new law school after Duncan.
