State Board Of Elections Has No Investigators
Posted by: Joseph Spectoron Jan 07, 2013
The state Board of Elections had one investigator to handle any abuse of campaign finance or election law. The investigator retired last year, and now there is none.
Board of Elections spokesman John Conklin confirmed today that the state hasn’t allowed the department to hire a new investigator to uphold election law. At one point, the board had six investigators.
“We have not been allowed to hire anybody new,” Conklin said. “If we need to have an investigation done, we would call upon State Police.”
