Secret Documents Detail State's Offer To Big Corporation

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Critics call it an example of corporate welfare on steroids.

The proposal, drafted to lure a big corporation to Tennessee, is contained in confidential documents leaked to NewsChannel 5 Investigates.

"Holy mackerel!" exclaimed taxpayer watchdog and Tea Party activist Ben Cunningham as we gave him a glimpse at the documents.

"Oh, my gosh!" echoed Rep. Sherry Jones, D-Nashville.

For months, we had been asking the Haslam administration for those documents.

And for months, they had refused.

But, through a source, we've now obtained a never-before-seen peek behind the curtain of how your state government really works.
