Body shop owner challenging Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney

Second-term Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney is being challenged in the Republican primary by John Mosley, a body shop owner who says insurance companies have gotten away with paying for less-than-perfect replacement parts to repair damaged vehicles.

Chaney supporters criticize Mosley for hiring a Democratic trial lawyer in 2013 to sue insurance companies over replacement parts, and they question whether Mosley is trying to become the state’s top insurance regulator simply to help fellow body shop owners.
