Attorney General’s Office Seeks to Block Bonus Evidence
There’s a new development in the trial involving Senator Lowell Barron and his use of his candidate campaign funds. The state attorney general’s office is asking an appeals court to keep the former senator from presenting evidence at trial about how other candidates have spent their campaign funds. Attorney General Luther Strange’s staff disagrees with the ruling that Barron could introduce the new evidence, including evidence on how the attorney general spent his campaign funds. Barron is charged with paying a former aide a $50,000 dollar bonus from his campaign funds to help her repay a debt to him.
