MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A candidate for juvenile court judge in Shelby County is being investigated after a WREG story about his quest for votes.

Tarik Sugarmon has been telling people if they follow him on various forms of social media, they could win cash from him.

Sugarmon told us, "Any campaign that’s not engaging social media is missing an opportunity.”

He went on to tell us even he wasn't sure the cash offer was appropriate, “We did not ask for votes,” he said. “We asked for ‘likes’ and retweets. I have asked for an opinion from the Election Commission on that. If it’s an issue…Obviously we have until July 18…We’ll take it down.”

The Shelby County District Attorney General's office said because of our report, they are looking into whether the cash offer is a violation of campaign rules.

We will keep you updated on new developments in this story.
