Editor’s note: This story has been updated to clarify how two internal Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security documents differ on who may have asked a trooper to take a photo of Democrat Karl Dean at an event.
A Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper assigned to provide security for both gubernatorial candidates was removed from his post last month after violating a nondisclosure agreement by revealing details of Democrat Karl Dean’s schedule to Republican Bill Lee’s campaign.
The article goes on to state the following:
After learning about a Dean stop the Lee campaign understood to be part of a “Muslim event,” according to Tennessee Highway Patrol memos obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee, the Lee campaign reportedly asked another trooper whether his staff could obtain a photo of Dean in a mosque.
The Sept. 7 event in question was a meet and greet at a falafel restaurant in Knoxville, and not a religious gathering.

We live in a remarkable state, but our next governor is still going to face major challenges. We shouldn’t just throw money at problems, we need to look for twenty year solutions. We need to actually solve the toughest problems. That’s what Tennesseans deserve. pic.twitter.com/LKT8QmZLkN
