WOODBURY, TN (WSMV) The highest elected official in Cannon County can be heard in audio, obtained by the News 4 I Team, discussing threatening letters sent anonymously to his critics.An I Team investigation tracked down the three women who received the letters, all which are tailored to silence each woman and contain the same block letter writing.District Attorney Jennings Jones, who represents Cannon County, said he has asked the TBI to investigate.Josh DeVine, spokesman for the TBI, confirmed to the I Team that they are investigating a claim of on behalf of Gannon.It is unclear if the TBI investigation references what the I Team has uncovered.In an audio recording of Cannon County executive Mike Gannon, he can be heard describing in vivid detail one of the letters before it was sent to a woman who had frequently criticized the county government.”That son of a bitch has been lit up,” Gannon said in the audio.The I Team began investigating when we obtained audio of a private meeting from January between Gannon and county commissioner Adam Melton.Deputy Clerk Tina George made the recording when she was walking past Gannon office in the Cannon County courthouse and could hear he and Melton talking loudly.Fearing they were violating the open meetings act, which forbids deliberation of county business in secret, George sat down and started recording on her phone.That when George heard Gannon talking about a letter, that had been delivered the day before, that threatened a local critic of Cannon County government not to say anything else on Facebook.Gannon can be heard on the audio discussing what the letter contained, including a claim that the critic allegedly performed a sex act in a horse trailer, and that if the critic didn stay of Facebook, that story would be shared.The I Team obtained the letter. You shut up or I’m putting every bit of this on Facebook.”The letter then goes on to threaten that if Jan continues on Facebook, that the world will know about the time she was in a horse trailer and performed a sex act.In the audio, Gannon said, it said, if you’re not (quiet), I remember when you were on a horse ride a few years ago and in the back of a horse trailer. then can be heard describing the sex act from the letter.The letter also reads, wonder what your church would think about that. can be heard saying, would your church folks feel about you then?”Gannon also said in the audio, like, I can’t remember the exact words, if I were you. I would stay off, I telling you, if I were you. I would be quiet on Facebook.”Gannon went on to say, “She should have gotten it today, it was mailed yesterday. That what I heard.””I couldn’t believe that he would do such a thing. Or someone would be capable of doing such a thing,” George said.And when that meeting ended, George was waiting outside.In the audio, you can hear George said hello to Gannon, and he asked her what she was doing.”What do you mean what am I doing?” George responded. have heard everything you have said.”Gannon responded but it unclear what he said.A few days after that meeting, Jan Powell went to her mailbox and found a letter from an anonymous sender, containing the insulting sex claim she said never happened.”I was pretty scared because didn’t know who it was, what they were going to do. I immediately started looking over my shoulder and I still look over my shoulder, Powell said.
