The Russian effort to influence last year's U.S. presidential election is now hitting home in Tennessee as Twitter suspended an account masquerading as the "unofficial Twitter of Tennessee Republicans." According to WTVF, the Tennessee Republican Party said it tried to warn Twitter about the faux account three times before Twitter finally suspended the account. The fake account amassed 130,000 followers during the election cycle with tweets that mocked Donald Trump's democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, and other establishment Republicans like Arizona Sen. John McCain.

 


TBI Warns of Fentanyl in Cocaine
TBI/Peg Broadcasting News Saturday October 21, 2017

The TBI's Drug Investigation Division (DID) is urging public caution, especially among recreational drug users, after the drug fentanyl was found in samples of cocaine in Middle and East Tennessee. In certain doses, fentanyl can be 50 to 100 times as potent as morphine. The drug doesn't necessarily need to be ingested to have an effect. It can absorb through the skin, so touching the substance can quickly put an individual at risk of opioid overdose. This poses a hazard not only to drug users but also to law enforcement, first responders and others who render medical assistance. Anyone struggling with drug addiction issues should contact the Tennessee REDLINE at 1-800-889-9789.
