NASHVILLE — Phil Williams, chief investigative reporter for Nashville’s News Channel 5, evidently doesn’t want Tennessee Watchdog posing questions about why Tennessee Supreme Court officials scheduled 10 unprecedented executions before their retention election.

And if Williams has his way, the Tennessee Supreme Court will remain majority Democrat and out of touch with conservative Tennessee values.

The court, as previously reported, appoints the state attorney general. The current occupant of that office, Bob Cooper, is also a Democrat who refused to fight Obamacare in court.
