DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. -

The FOX 5 I-Team has learned that Douglas County District Attorney David McDade is personally asking the GBI to investigate how money is spent in his office.

McDade's letter states he wants the investigation done by an outside neutral agency following media reports questioning expenditures in his office. (CLICK HERE TO READ THE LETTER)
 
Those reports were generated by the FOX 5 I-team, which has examined the DA's office spending during the past week.

The GBI only does criminal investigations. One source told FOX 5's Dale Russell that the GBI will conduct a preliminary inquiry and then determine if a full investigation needs to be done.

Sources said that McDade's letter was sent to GBI director Vernon Keenan on Wednesday following a closed door meeting by the Prosecuting Attorney's Council on Tuesday.

McDade could not be reached for comment, nor could anyone from the Council.

    We already know about some of the fees our banks charge -- the monthly fee, the overdraft charge, out-of-network and minimum balance fees. That's standard stuff. But did you know that the average checking account has 30 fees attached?
