JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A campaign spokesman for Mississippi Republican Tate Reeves says an investigative report by Democrat Jim Hood is a "political dirty trick."
The spokesman, Parker Briden, says Attorney General Hood "admits he proved no wrongdoing and can take no action" against Lt. Gov. Reeves.
Hood on Wednesday released a 43-page investigative report that says Reeves used political pressure to try to get a highway widened and a frontage road built near the gated subdivision where Reeves lives in Flowood.
Hood says Reeves refused to release email and other documents, which prevented him from completing a criminal investigation. Hood says he will not bring any civil legal action against Reeves.
