The immense amount of scrutiny into Mobile Mayor Sam Jones campaign expenditures prompted me to present some perspective, which is to say, to show that Jones expenditures stand out only when examined alone.
Links to two, uh, unusual but I think effective videos and a story that focuses on spending by State Sen. Roger Bedford can be found here: http://www.eddiecurran.com/TheSamJonesProbe.htm
If you are only interested in the story about Bedford, go here: http://modmobilian.com/2012/06/08/eddie-curran-on-the-campaign-trail-with-roger-bedford/
If Bedford's spending form his campaign funds is legal, then there really is no such thing as illegal spending of campaign funds. If that sounds like a strong statement, then read the story.
