WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — We told you yesterday about Boiling Spring Lakes firing its police chief. Today, we uncovered a lawsuit filed by Mayor Richard White.

White filed the suit for almost $30,000 against a Wilmington woman back in March. Now the mayor is waiting to find out if he’ll get his money back.

In the lawsuit, White says a woman he met while teaching a shooting class sought him out for help after the course was done.

We’re going to protect her identity for now, because White says she said her husband assaulted their son and she needed White’s help to handle the situation.

The suit says later, the woman asked for financial help as well to pay for a hotel stay and legal fees for her and her son totaling more than $6,500.

For collateral White says the woman let him keep some belongings at his home, including $35,000 worth of jewelry.

Afterwards, the suits says white gave her a credit card in her name with a $20,000 spending limit. White says the woman maxed out the cards and then she wanted the jewelry back.

According to a response from the woman, after a SBI investigation, White returned the jewelry to the woman to avoid being arrested. The response also says the woman paid white back for the initial loans in cash but didn’t get a receipt.

We called white. He said he did not want to talk about the lawsuit, and said he just wanted his money back.

The woman’s lawyer says White is just trying to get money and that the case is still in the discovery stage.

There’s an old saying that I heard a judge repeat one day when a case involving an older man throwing money at a womam to…shall we say, ‘help her out’. The judge said, “There’s no fool like an old fool”.

I’m starting tho think that someone from outside of NC should start looking into everything that’s going on around here! Let’s not just focus on BSL, let’s look into the sewer fiasco on Oak Island, the new Village Rd trafic pattern in Leland, the push for the Skyway Bridge. I’m sure there are many, many more things that should be brought into the light.

I don’t know whether Mayor White is justified in his lawsuit, but the lady who writes this blog seems intent on defaming him, DA Jon David, and Judge White. Evidently, the Blog’s author was found guilty of some offense by Judge Warren and she is on a vendetta against the Judge, the DA and the mayor. So if you look at this Blog as I did, be prepared to read totally unsubstantiated and disgusting innuendos. WWAY deserves credit for uncovering this lawsuit and I hope to someday learn the full story. The residents of BSL deserve the truth. But you won’t get it from reading a poorly written Blog by a vindictive author.

Did any of you people ever stop to think that maybe withholding her name is for her protection? I mean the suit does say that he assaulted her son…who says the husband wouldn’t assault or even kill her… Would you want that blood on your hands just to satisfy your selfish nosiness? Think about it…

An SBI Investigation resulted in Mayor White returning the jewelry or being arrested???. Uh, people that speaks volumes… Because they don’t mess around in their investigations. Of course this was all covered up because he had the BSL Police Dept white out his name on the police report. A young lady tried to bring all this out at his last re-election. Think it’s time to get some real facts on this Mayor WWAY…
