"None of those people attended that fundraiser. You took these pictures of state cars at another meeting," he told Hall.
Perdue took the photos from Hall and promised to check the license plate numbers.
"If there are bad apples out there, bring them to my attention and we'll take appropriate action," he said.
Perdue said employees who volunteer for his campaign do so in their free time. While state civil service employees are forbidden from working on campaigns, even in their free time, Perdue said his workers are "will-and-pleasure" employees and not subject to that rule.
When asked if Hall would employ local government specialists if he were elected, he said he would have to see if those employees were really needed.
Hall also said Perdue is using trinkets handed out by the treasurer's office to promote his campaign. To illustrate his point, the Republican challenger pulled out a purple piggy bank. He said one of his friends got it at the Pumpkin Festival in Milton from state treasurer employees.
The piggy bank was emblazoned with the logo for the state's Smart 529 program, but it also included Perdue's name and his office's phone number.
Hall said the treasurer's office also ordered rubber ducks featuring the Smart 529 logo and Perdue's name.
"It's name recognition," he said.
When asked why his name appeared on the piggy bank, Perdue said, "The name's on the pig so they know where to call."
Perdue said every incumbent office holder enjoys the privileges of name recognition. He pointed out that Hall, a state senator from Putnam County, would have more name recognition than someone challenging him for that seat.
