The Press-Register of Mobile reports that Pittman Tractor Co. received $639,000 to help deploy oil-blocking boom around Fairhope.

The company is owned by Republican state Sen. Trip Pittman of Montrose.

As a legislator, Pittman was responsible for overseeing the use of the BP grant money in the county.

Pittman says he hasn't done anything wrong.

A Fairhope resident says he has filed a complaint with the Alabama Ethics Commission alleging improprieties, however.
