Hood files suit, Pickering issues demand against supervisor
Published: March 2,2012
JACKSON — Attorney General Jim Hood has filed suit against Hinds County Supervisor Robert Graham, demanding he repay money state auditors say he earned double-dipping while on the clock at his former city job.
Auditor Stacey Pickering’s office contends Graham, between 2004 and 2007 as a Jackson police spokesman and 911 dispatch supervisor, earned almost $46,000 operating his private business, Professional Dispatch Management teaching dispatcher certification classes while on the city clock.
The Clarion-Ledger reports the suit filed Tuesday in Hinds County Circuit Court seeks over $45,000, including costs of the auditor’s investigation and interest.
The 58-year-old Graham, in his second term as supervisor now serving as board president, denies he falsified time records and other allegations, calling them politically motivated.
