MONTGOMERY, AL (AP) - Another Democratic candidate for Alabama attorney general has released tax returns. Mobile attorney Michel Nicrosi made public her 2009 tax return on Friday.

It shows she and her husband, Mobile lawyer Ben Harris III, had adjusted gross income of more than $346,000 and gave more than $18,000 to charity. Another Democratic candidate for attorney general, Montgomery attorney James Anderson, released his returns last week.

Most candidates for statewide office in Alabama don't release their tax returns, but Nicrosi and Anderson said they believe voters deserve to know. The two face Birmingham lawyer Giles Perkins in the Democratic

primary on June 1.
