Official Calls Reporter A “Bitch,” Resigns, Then Does It Again

Ron Buchanan, Nashville’s top election official, resigned on Monday after calling a reporter from WSMV-TV a “bitch”—while tape was rolling.

Buchanan was answering questions about his expenses, which included meals at upscale local restaurants and pricey office furnishings. He was doing a fine enough job of defending his expenses—but something got under his skin when the reporter asked him this question: “Could you have gone to another restaurant that was perhaps not as expensive?”

It’s not just that he called her that term. It’s that he did it again in his bitter resignation letter.
