TN legislature destroyed documents from Jeremy Durham investigation

Tennessee legislative staff have destroyed "files, documents, photographs, emails and other information" relevant to Jeremy Durham and his historic ouster from the House of Representatives.

Director of Legislative Administration Connie Ridley said Monday she could not provide public documents and information asked for by The Tennessean because Durham's computers, iPad and other materials given to him have been "returned to factory default settings."

"As a result, any inactive persons’ files, documents, photographs, emails and other information (has) become irretrievable," Ridley said.
