Kelsey Says He Is Glad That DA Steve Bebb "Finally Stepped Down"

Monday, June 30, 2014

Senator Brian Kelsey (R-Germantown), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today issued the following statement regarding the resignation effective today of Steve Bebb, District Attorney for Bradley, McMinn, Monroe and Polk counties.

“I’m glad that General Bebb finally decided to step down today. This resignation officially ends the Senate Judiciary Committee investigation of General Bebb.

"The fact that he resigned only two months early and still receives full benefits shows the need for further judicial reform.  Tennessee needs one person—the attorney general—to prosecute acts of public corruption, and that one person needs to be held accountable directly to the people.”

Steve Crump won the election to replace DA Bebb.
