Brown to investigate leak of governor’s finances

By: Magnolia Tribune - September 17, 2007

The Natchez Democrat, 9/15/7

Former Natchez City Attorney Walter Brown will investigate how Gov. Haley Barbour’s personal financial information was leaked, the state ethics commission announced Friday.

Under state law, it is a misdemeanor to release a public official’s financial information without the individual’s permission.

Barbour set up a blind trust before he took office, a common practice on the federal level but one rarely, if ever, seen on the state level, Brown said.
