James Billow resigned as director of the Licking County, Ohio, Alcoholism Prevention Program after his second drunken driving conviction. Both times he was driving an agency vehicle. Now, the LAPP wants him to justify $36,000 in official credit card transactions or pay the money back. The charges were made at restaurants, flower shops, boutiques and hotels.

That woman has already paid back almost $1,500 in charges she made on her official credit card.
