NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The former chairman of the state Democratic Party is calling on ethics officials to investigate Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam.

Chip Forrester says officials should investigate Haslam's hidden payments to campaign consultant and lobbyist Tom Ingram.

Forrester calls Haslam's refusal to disclose those payments a "disturbing pattern of rule breaking and secrecy."
