Not Sure of This

I happened to catch the top of the 7 AM hour of NewsChannel 3's morning broadcast, which I usually avoid except for the weather forecast. They opened with a reporter speaking to US Representative Harold Ford, Jr. at a Memphis voting precinct, then brought in AC Wharton! Both spoke of the campaign and Election Day, with Ford clearly endorsing Wharton.

I thought State law prohibited any campaigning within 100 yards of a voting precinct, much less a live interview within sight of voting booths? Or do the TV stations get special permission from the Election Commissioner?

Call me picky, but it just seems wrong.

Until next time, that is all.
