A Fulton County judge is set to hear arguments from two insurance companies who want to block a State Ethics
Commission investigation into contributions to Republican gubernatorial hopeful John Oxendine. Judge Kimberly
Esmond Adams will hear the arguments Thursday morning in Fulton County Superior Court.
State Mutual Insurance Company and Admiral Life Insurance Company are seeking to block the commission's
investigation alleging it's politically motivated.
The companies are under investigation for funneling money to Oxendine's campaign through 10 political action
committees. Oxendine is the state's insurance commissioner and is barred from taking money directly from
companies he regulates. He has since returned the money.
