The Tennessee District Attorney General is responsible for all prosecution and investigation of campaign finance violations in the State of Tennessee.

Governance

There is a elected District Attorney General for each of the state's 31 judicial districts. Each District Attorney General serves a eight year term[1].

Campaign finance discipline

If a person feels that someone violated Tennessee campaign finance law, the first step is to file a complaint with the Tennessee Registry of Election Finance. All complaints must be sworn complaints under Tennessee law[2]. The registry of election finance forwards all complaints to the Tennessee District Attorney General for investigation regardless if its civil or criminal law violations[3]. Any person who submits a false complaint or for the purpose of harassing someone must pay the affected candidate all usual and necessary attorneys fees[4].
