MADISON COUNTY (WAFF)- The Alabama Attorney General's office is investigating a former Madison County employee for misappropriation of funds. The ethics committee investigated this complaint for nearly a year before turning it over to the Attorney General's office.
It has been confirmed that the person in question worked as an employee with District 3. We are told they were an assistant to former commissioner Jerry Craig. The amount of money in question is in the tens of thousands over the past eight years.
Current County Commissioner for District 3, Eddie Sisk, said Friday that as far as he knows the allegations of the mishandled money go back to 2005, maybe longer. He said the money came out of an account for the fishing rodeo. He said he noticed the missing money not long after he took office a few months ago when he looked at a bank statement.
