Lee County - A state ethics panel fined the Lee County sheriff and chief deputy for inappropriately using county resources for the sheriff's campaign.
The commission approved a settlement with Sheriff Harold Breeden and Chief Dennis Parker that calls for each to pay a $750 fine. Neither would comment on the decision.
Former sheriff's candidate Jimmy Kerfoot filed the complaint. Breeden and Parker admitted they had campaign signs delivered to the sheriff's department and asked employees to transport the signs.
Breeden also asked employees to help write a letter on department letterhead questioning Kerfoot's qualifications.
