Dems want Strange off the PAC-to-PAC investigation of Riley

The Montgomery Advertiser reports: The Alabama Democratic Party asked Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange to recuse himself from any future investigation of a PAC-to-PAC transfer involving a political action committee chaired by former Gov. Bob Riley and the Republican State Leadership Committee.

In a statement Monday, Mark Kennedy, the chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party, said the appointment of Strange's former campaign manager, Jessica Madeiros Garrison, as head of the Republican Attorneys General Association created a conflict of interest in the investigation the party is seeking.

"Given that Attorney General Luther Strange's former campaign manager has been hired to direct an association that is part of Republican State Leadership Committee, there is a plain conflict of interest with Attorney General Strange's investigating this illegal PAC-to-PAC transfer," Kennedy said in a statement. "I am asking that Attorney General Strange recuse himself from this investigation." -- Read the whole story --> Democrats want Strange to step away from PAC investigation | The Montgomery Advertiser | montgomeryadvertiser.com
