TN House Speaker Cameron Sexton Faces Residency Allegations After Purchasing $600,000 Nashville Home

After participating in efforts to expel three Democrat representatives for disorderly conduct on the House floor recently, Tennessee House Speaker Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville-District 25) is now under media fire for possibly violating election laws outlined in Tennessee Code. 

Last week, Reporter Judd Legum of Popular Information released a series of articles questioning whether Tennessee House Speaker Cameron Sexton actually lives in the district he represents.

These articles were followed up by short-form videos on the topic posted to Popular Information’sTikTok account.

Sexton has been accused of not actually living in Crossville as a representative for District 25, but of instead residing in Nashville full-time. If these accusations are true, Sexton could be illegally representing Crossville.

Tennessee attorney John Spragens stated, “He’s not the first speaker to do that – just the first to expel members while his own house is not in order.” 

Allegations like this were bound to come up with the Tennessee legislature being heavily scrutinized because of their behavior in the aftermath of a school shooting in Nashville last month.
