MONTGOMERY, Ala. - A leader of the state voter registrars' organization has filed an ethics complaint against Secretary of State Nancy Worley.
Lester Sellers, the legislative chairman of the Alabama Association of Boards of Registrars, accused Worley of not making a proper accounting of money received from the federal government to update Alabama's voting records and voting equipment.
He also accused her of using tax dollars to run "voter education" ads that really promote her.
Worley says it's a baseless complaint designed to damage her in an election year.
She says other state officials, including the governor and state treasurer, have appeared in taxpayer-funded ads to promote everything from using seat belts to saving for college.
