Liberty County Judge Phil Fitzgerald has announced his intentions to seek re-election. In a statement, the Democratic judge said he hopes to continue working towards a better county for residents. Fitzgerald's announcement comes as state and federal officials continue to look into allegations that he and his family profited from the Hurricane Ike cleanup in awarding a debris contract to his brother-in-law's company.

The probe stems from a joint investigation by our 13 Undercover team and the Cleveland Advocate.

Fitzgerald says he did nothing wrong.
