Leesburg -- Lee County Commissioner Billy Mathis wants the Attorney General's office to investigate whether three commissioners broke the law when they put together a letter that criticizes him.
Mathis says if Commissioners Jackie Sizemore, Morris Leverett and Wally Roberts got together to write the letter it may violate open meetings laws.
In the letter to the Lee County Ledger, the three call Mathis a "silver tongued lawyer." They say he used the tax issue to rally public support though he overspent himself as commission chairman.
Mathis says the letter is full of lies. Mathis called it "Nasty, in the gutter politics. Simple as that. Fabrications just, just, just nastiness."
The letter states Lee County citizens have been duped into an alliance with Mathis, who considers himself a conservative steward of public money.
Mathis simply said the numbers don't lie. He says the last year he was chairman, the county over spent $300,000. That increased to a million dollars the next year.
