fraud hotline

The Kentucky Attorney General’s Office reports 205 calls to its election fraud hotline Tuesday during the primary. Instances of vote buying and selling were reported in several counties. The bulk of the complaints concern instances of alleged election fraud and procedural questions related to voting. 


The Tennessee Comptroller’s Office has seen an increase in suspected fraud reports in the past year.

Comptroller spokesperson Blake Fontenay says a year-old fraud reporting website contributed to that increase.


Tennesseans suspecting fraud, waste or abuse of public funds in state government can now report their suspicions online. The state Comptroller's office has provided a toll-free telephone hotline for reporting suspected fraud, waste and abuse since 1983. During that time, the hotline has received more than 17,000 calls.

Calls to the state attorney general’s election fraud hotline are running higher than a year ago.  By mid-afternoon, 16 complaints had been received.
