New Information on the Wright Investigation

WILMINGTON -- There is new information about the investigation into Representative Thomas Wright.

The state board of election has yet to receive his finance reports.

The board will use records to determine how much money Wright raised or spent during the first six months of this year.

In May, the board started looking into Wright's finances from 2000 through 2006.

The Democrat is accused of mixing campaign donations with personal money in bank accounts and failing to file accurate campaign finance reports.

If the documents don't arrive soon with a postmark of July 27, Wright could be fined up to $500.
