Sweet Deal

A pair of front page articles in the Memphis Commercial Appeal have explored US Senate candidate Bob Corker's windfalls as Chatanooga Mayor. Financial reports show he made more money while Mayor than in the previous 24 years -- combined.

The paper reports that as mayor, Mr Corker was supposed to protect a conservation easement the city held.

Instead, his Osborne Building Corportation developed the land and sold it to a shopping center developer for $4.7 million.

Mr Corker is the Republican nominee for US Senate in Tennessee. (Chattanoogan)
