Mingo County Corruption Investigation Expands
The investigation continues into possible Mingo County corruption. Now the state Office of Disciplinary Counsel is investigating three Mingo County attorneys - Matthew Chandler, Wesley White, and Ronald Rumora - who have been mentioned in other pending corruption cases in Mingo County. Chandler resigned last week before an emergency meeting of the Mingo County Commission where Teresa Maynard was appointed to take over as prosecutor for Michael Sparks, according to the Daily Mail. Chandler and Smith work together at Smith's private law firm, and resigned rather than risk a conflict of interest.
