PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A lawyer for imprisoned former Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox has been granted another extension to file campaign finance documents for the campaign account Fox pilfered.

Fox is serving three years in prison for taking more than $100,000 from his campaign account and taking a $52,500 bribe.

The campaign finance documents were due to the Board of Elections this Friday. Fox’s lawyer, Albin Moser, had already been granted one seven-day extension

Richard Thornton, the board’s campaign finance director, said on Thursday that he’s approving Moser’s request for a second seven-day extension to continue compiling the records, which now will be due Aug. 14.

Thornton says the law doesn’t impose a limit on the number of extensions that can be granted.

Moser couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
