Disclosures show DA dines and drinks with campaign funds

An investigation by John O'Brien of The Post-Standard (Syracuse, N.Y.) discovered Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick has used $11,633 of his campaign funds for dining and entertainment. His campaign paid the bill 49 times in 2006 and 2007 at restaurants and bars from Portland, Ore. to Amelia Island, Fla., spending far more than other district attorneys' campaigns across the state on food and drink. The story examined campaign finance disclosures that Fitzpatrick had previously not itemized until the newspaper exposed the violation of state election law.
