KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A political adviser to Republican state Senator Stacey Campfield has been fired from his state job as the senator's executive assistant for apparently violating legislative staff rules.

Bryan Dodson spent most of August in Knoxville instead of at his Nashville office as rules for legislative staff require.

According to Dodson's work time sheet for August obtained by the newspaper, Dodson wrote that he worked 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on all work days during the month. Beside the date August 12, he wrote on the form "in Knox" with a line and arrow going down through August 30.

Campfield said his understanding was that Dodson had been given special permission by Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey's office to work outside of the state government complex in Nashville.
