NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The State Election Commission appointed Jesse Neil to the Davidson County Election Commission Wednesday morning to fill the seat of former chairman Ron Buchanan.

The appointment comes just over a week after the former chairman resigned, which came shortly after calling a Nashville reporter a b****.

In his resignation letter he wrote, “There are some that may feel my description of her conduct was inappropriate. That is understandable, but it is certainly not uncommon. I would estimate 90 percent of the adult men would have used the same term to describe the reporter’s conduct if they had been present, or a similar word would have used by women to describe the conduct if it had been a male reporter.”

Buchanan’s term was not scheduled to end until April 2017.
