The Republican candidate for district attorney
Friday demanded District Attorney Bill White quit
using his investigators as his "private police force.
Marc Davidson, who is unopposed for the GOP
nomination, said the use of taxpayers' money to
protect White's campaign signs is illegal and an
abuse of authority.

investigators they had the authority to shoot people
tampering with his signs. The law, he explained,

with signs show bad judgment and a misunderstanding of the law, Davidson said
Even if the investigators are working on their own
time, Davidson said, they're still using county equipment for White's political purposes.
