FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) --Monday Dan Logsdon sent a letter to Auditor Crit Luallen complaining that Richie Farmer purchased and installed two big-screen TV's, including one in his office, at a cost of more than $6,600.

Farmer, running mate of Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams, has been criticized for spending decisions at the Kentucky Agriculture Department.

Logsdon previously questioned an assortment of expenditures, ranging from a Caribbean trip, to the purchase of a refrigerator for Farmer's home office. The TV's, plus 10 chairs that cost taxpayers more than $4,000, were new additions to the list.

Logsdon urged Luallen to investigate immediately.

Farmer campaign spokesman Scott Jennings didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
