State House Majority Leader Kim McMillan will not run for re-election this year, the Clarksville Democrat told The Leaf-Chronicle newspaper.
This is good news that Rep. McMillan is stepping down. No, not because she’s a Democrat, but because she is one of those legislators who does not see her conflicts of interest as a problem.
I’ve heard rumors of at least two other incumbents stepping down because their day jobs and their legislative assignments put them into a conflict of interest given the newest ethics rules (one from each party). Of course, they could just ignore ethics laws like other people seem to have done.
