Ragsdale's Tenure Mercifully Near An End
Mike Ragsdale's reign of corruption as Knox County Mayor is nearing an end
Ragsdale sent his minions to hack into e-mails of suspected political opponents, dig into medical records of public critics, and some say (granted without real proof) to try and have his opposition assassinated while keeping his hands clean. Ragsdale very likely didn't order Knoxville City Councilman Steve Hall to be killed, but it was awfully funny that an attempt to shoot Hall took place not only when Steve Hall was running against Mike Ragsdale in the 2006 Knox County Republican primary, but when Hall's candidacy was clearly the beginning of a long process of bringing the abuses of the Ragsdale Administration to light in Knox County.
