Tampa, Florida -- There is a new controversy involving former Hillsborough Commissioner Kevin White and County Attorney Renee Lee.

The county is involved in a major legal battle with White over fees that taxpayers had to pick up in a sexual discrimination suit. That's why eyebrows are being raised over a lunch White had with the county attorney.

The publisher of newspaper La Gaceta, Patrick Manteiga, saw the pair at Roy's Restaurant earlier this week. Manteiga says it seems improper to him because the county is in the midst of suing White. Although it is being handled by another attorney, Manteiga says it seems strange because there is a lot of bad blood between White and the county.

Meanwhile, Lee told 10 News there was nothing improper. She says she was having lunch with a friend when she bumped into White. Some commissioners told us they were surprised Lee would have lunch with White.
