NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT/AP) -- Tennessee's embattled House speaker is now being accused of violating the state's election laws after spending the past two weeks facing a long list of other scandals surrounding his office.

A complaint filed with the Nashville district attorney's office says social media advertisements purchased by Speaker Glen Casada's political action committee failed to disclose who paid for them.
