MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) A Metro Atlanta County Commissioner, denies

hiring a voodoo priestess to get even a political rival - and bouncing

checks in the process.

Law enforcement authorities in two states have been trying to

determine whether a crime had been committed.

According to Cobb County Police, George Ann Mills told them that she

is a high priestess in Blythewood, South Carolina, and Cobb

Commissioner Annette Kesting wrote her $3,000 in bad checks.

According to a police report filled back on Sept. 26, Mills claimed the

commissioner wanted Woody Thompson, who defeated Kesting in an

Aug. 5 Democratic primary runoff, to "catch cancer" or to "have a car

accident."

Mills also stated in the report that she would never performed a voodoo

ritual because "a true priest or priestess of voodoo would not

intentionally cause the death of another."

Mills claims Kesting gave her a $2,000 check for the ritual back on

Aug. 27 and postdated a $1,000 check for Sept. 11, and both checks

bounced.
