Former Treasurer For Joyce Campaign Under Investigation For Theft

The re-election committee for Ohio Republican congressman Dave Joyce suspects its former treasurer has stolen tens of thousands of dollars from the campaign's bank account. 

The campaign sent the Federal Election Commission a letter Friday saying bank security camera footage has helped confirm ex-treasurer Scott Coleman used the campaign's ATM card to make more than 80 thousand dollars in unauthorized withdrawals over a three-year-period. Coleman, the longtime mayor of Highland Heights, has yet to comment.  Coleman became campaign treasurer for Joyce in 2012 and served the same role for Joyce's predecessor, the late Steve LaTourette. The Geauga County prosecutor confirmed there's an investigation but wouldn't comment further.
