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.
