New allegations against Rep. Wright

WILMINGTON -- There is a new allegation against state Rep. Thomas Wright concerning missing money. NewsChannel 3 obtained a search warrant and SBI affidavit. The State Bureau of Investigation used it to seize bank records related to a 2001 loan involving Wright and the New Hanover Community Health Foundation. The Wilmington democrat is chairman of the foundation's board of directors. The SBI contends Wright took out a loan in the name of the health foundation, but never deposited the money in the foundation account. Wright's personal and campaign finances are the targets of an ongoing criminal investigation, including accusations of perjury and fraud. Through it all he has refused to step down.
