Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell has filed a complaint asking an ethics panel to investigate 10th Judicial District Attorney Steve Bebb.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/1dd6fJN) reports Harwell said in a statement on Friday that she asked the Board of Professional Responsibility to conduct a "thorough, prompt investigation and appropriate action." Two other lawmakers have filed similar complaints.
Bebb did not respond to the newspaper's request for comment.
A Times Free Press series published last year detailed wide-ranging allegations of misconduct by Bebb and people he supervised.
In March, state Attorney General Robert Cooper released a report saying Bebb exhibited poor judgment and bad record-keeping, but Cooper did not find any prosecutable violations.
Harwell said lawmakers would review the findings of the ethics panel and take appropriate action.
