His accuser? His estranged wife, Allison. She marched herself into the Knoxville News-Sentinel's newsroom the other day with what she called documentation. Not since Bill Boner's "seven hours of passion" has a woman gotten a Tennessee mayor in so much trouble.
Not to pile on or anything, Knoxville state Sen. Stacey Campfield posted this video of Allison talking about Tim in happier times. He was "kind and honest" then, according to Allison.
"When was this ad made?" the curious Campfield asked on his blog. "About the same time as the checks were cashed I would think." Ouch.
Update: Campfield has taken down his post, showing in a shocker that he's actually capable of embarrassment. Over at KnoxViews, Randy Neal gives Campfield grief: "Tim Burchett did everything he could short of driving voters to the polls (and maybe he did that, too) to get Stacey Campfield elected to Burchett's former state senate seat. This is the thanks he gets?"
