DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. -

The FOX 5 I-Team has learned that Douglas County District Attorney David McDade is personally asking the GBI to investigate how money is spent in his office.

McDade's letter states he wants the investigation done by an outside neutral agency following media reports questioning expenditures in his office. (CLICK HERE TO READ THE LETTER)

The GBI only does criminal investigations. One source told FOX 5's Dale Russell that the GBI will conduct a preliminary inquiry and then determine if a full investigation needs to be done.

Sources said that McDade's letter was sent to GBI director Vernon Keenan on Wednesday following a closed door meeting by the Prosecuting Attorney's Council on Tuesday.

McDade could not be reached for comment, nor could anyone from the Council.

    The notion of 'Keeping up with the Jones' is not new, but there is a new pressure coming at you. Peer pressure - whether you're 13 or 33 - is a powerful thing. Now throw in social media and you have what an Atlanta counselor calls 'Keeping up with the Jones' on steroids. And if you're not careful that can get costly.
