Fox’s lawyer to meet with election regulators about finances

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A lawyer for imprisoned former House Speaker Gordon Fox says he has a meeting scheduled this week with staff at the Board of Elections as he tries to sort out Fox’s campaign account, which Fox pilfered for personal use.

Albin Moser was appointed to oversee Fox’s campaign finances when Fox was sentenced in June to three years in prison for taking a $52,500 bribe and using $108,000 from his campaign account for himself.

Moser says he plans at Thursday’s meeting to discuss the status of Fox’s accounts and ask board staff what steps they would like him to take.

Campaign finance director Ric Thornton said he couldn’t confirm the meeting, citing board confidentiality. But he says Fox’s reports were inaccurate, and the board would expect them to be amended.
