Auditor Jim Zeigler files lawsuit against AG’s office, Baldwin County Schools: ‘It’s an Alabama issue’ | AL.com

A lawsuit filed Friday in Montgomery County against Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange and Baldwin County school officials is being privately financed and is an effort to seek clarification on whether school boards can use taxpayer money to fund campaigns, Auditor Jim Zeigler said Monday.

Zeigler, speaking during a news conference at the Wind Chase Inn in Loxley, said the two-part lawsuit aims at stopping school boards throughout Alabama from spending taxpayers money and resources on political activity while seeking restitution from what the Baldwin County School System spent on a March 31 referendum.
