The Tennessee Senate Ethics Committee has not received a single complaint and has not met since 2005, Overbey said.

That’s despite the fact that in 2009, then-Sen. Paul Stanley, R-Germantown, faced scrutiny over allegations he had an affair with an intern. Stanley later resigned.

The House Ethics Committee has not fielded a complaint since the 106th General Assembly, which convened in 2009 and 2010, said Himes, the committee’s attorney.
