FW Mayor Reports Theft of Campaign Funds

NBCDFW

Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price's background as a county tax assessor didn't help shield her campaign from being victimized by theft.

Just about anyone can be the victim of theft -- even a mayor who used to be the county's tax assessor.

Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price says someone spent more than $900 from her political campaign's account.

The unauthorized charges were discovered after she received the September bank statement. Price filed a police report this week.

Price says someone stole the account information -- then made purchases at three stores in Abilene and Oklahoma City last month.

Police are investigating but have not arrested anyone.

Price was elected Fort Worth mayor in June after a run-off election. Before that she was the Tarrant County tax assessor and collector.
