This could cause a PS-scene

Public Service Commissioners Jan Cook and Jim Sullivan (a Democrat and a Republican, respectively) would appear to need to answer a few questions about tens of thousands of dollars of their campaign money. And even though they haven't responded to the (Mobile) Press-Register's entreaties for a couple of months, some folks in Montgomery just might be able to get in touch.

So where should the questioning begin? Here's one possible starting point. And here's another, suggested by a member of a nonpartisan watchdog group: "The traditional expenses of a campaign for any office are for staff, yard signs, polling, and that sort of thing. Monthly trips to the grocery store (shown on Cook's reports) and the purchase of multiple vehicles (shown on Sullivan's reports) are not normal expenses, especially more than a year away from an election."
