Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Tennessee

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Tennessee scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Controversies

Domestic assault charges

Hawk was arrested on March 18, 2012, on a domestic assault charge. According to the police report, Hawk hit his wife in the face while she was holding their 11-month-old daughter. Hawk, who was released on bond, said he was innocent of the charge, explaining that during the incident "my wife had a gun and told me she was gonna put a bullet in my head while I was holding my baby. At that time, I escaped to safety with my daughter."[11]

Hawk separated from his wife, Crystal Goan, and charges against Hawk were dismissed by a judge, who said that the prosecution had not made a convincing case that Goan suffered serious injury.[12]
