|Jones refers complaint over Brown candidacy to AG|
Fourth Judicial District Attorney Jerry Jones on Monday referred a residency complaint over Harris Brown's candidacy for the Senate District 35 seat to the state Attorney General's office.
Late last week, Harold Eugene Hodges of Monroe filed a complaint with the District Attorney's office, alleging Brown did not meet the residency requirements to run for the District 35 seat.
Brown, a Republican from Monroe, is opposing Sen. Bob Kostelka in the Oct. 22 primary election. Kostelka, a Republican from Monroe as well, is seeking his third and final term in the Senate. Monroe attorney Jeff Guerriero is a candidate in the race, too. Guerriero is a Republican.
Jones said he recused himself from handling the complaint over Brown's candidacy because "Bob (Kostelka) gave me my first job in Monroe."
"The law requires that if there is even a hint of impropriety, I should recuse myself from any involvement in the matter," Jones said.
As of late Monday afternoon, the Attorney General's office had not received notification from Jones' office that he had recused himself from the Brown case.
