 An insiders account of the secret bipartisan plot to oust a governor 
The Day the Democrats Ousted Their Governor, Put RepublicanLamar Alexander in Ofce Early, and Stopped a Pardon Scandal 
Keel hunt
Fwd by John l. Seigenthaler
is the behind-the-scenes story o anabrupt political transition, unprecedentedin US history. Based on 160 interviews,Hunt describes how collaborators cametogether rom opposite sides o the politicalaisle and, in an extraordinary ew hours,reached agreement that the corruption andmadness o the sitting Governor o ennessee,Ray Blanton, must be stopped. Te suddentranser o power that caught Blanton un-awares was deemed necessary because o whatone FBI agent called “the state’s most heinouspolitical crime in hal a century”—a schemeo selling pardons or cash.
On January 17, 1979, driven by new inormation that some o the worst crimi-nals in the state’s penitentiaries were aboutto be released (and ears that James EarlRay might be one o them), a small bipar-tisan group chose to take charge. SeniorDemocratic leaders, riends o the sittinggovernor, together with the Republicangovernor-elect Lamar Alexander (now US Senator rom ennessee), agreed tooust Blanton rom ofce beore anothernight ell. It was a maneuver unique inAmerican political history.

Te individual stories o those government ocials involved in the coup—each account unique, but all o them intersecting—werescattered like disconnected pieces o a jigsaw puzzle on the table o history until theauthor conceived this book. Perhaps becauseit happened so quickly, and without major disagreement, protest, or dissent, this trulyhistoric moment has been buried in the public mind. In unearthing the drama in gripping detail, Keel Hunt assures that the‘dark day’ will be remembered as a bright one in which conficted politicians cametogether in the public interest.”
