Lt. gov. candidate challenging opponent over Healthy Mississippi

The Clarion-Ledger, 6/18/7

State Sen. Charlie Ross, a candidate for lieutenant governor, today called on his Republican opponent, state auditor Phil Bryant, to prove that he made the Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi accountable for the way it spent $20 million every year. The Mississippi Supreme Court ruled last week that a chancery judge was wrong to divert the money from the state’s 1997 settlement with tobacco companies to the Partnership.

Bryant has served as a member of the Partnership board. Ross wants him to produce documents and correspondence showing how he advised or audited the group’s expenditures.
