Alabama sheriff calls a $3.6 million budget 'piddly'

Definition:  Merriam Webster

Reported in An Alabama Sheriff, a MysteryCheck and a Blogger Who Cried Foul.  (The New York Times, 12/14/2017)
The sheriff, Ana Franklin, wanted to know who was leaking information about her to a blogger known as the Morgan County Whistleblower.  
The blogger had been zeroing in on the sheriff’s finances, specifically $150,000 that by law should have gone toward feeding inmates in the county jail. Instead it had been invested in a now-bankrupt used-car dealership run by a convicted bank swindler.

Here's what's piddly.
