Sinsheimer Says More Complaints To Come

Wilmington, NC – Joe Sinsheimer, the man who filed the initial complaint against state Representative Thomas Wright, says more complaints against other lawmakers are on the way.

Sinsheimer says he has spent months looking into whether members of the payday lending industry were trying to hide their campaign contributions. He says ten months ago he filed a complaint focused on 38 legislators.

From that investigation he expects to file a complaint in the next couple of weeks against another lawmaker.

At this point, probably another democrat, I'm still actively doing that research. I'm going where the malfeasance takes me, I'm not on some ideological agenda.

Sinsheimer says he never received outside money to pay for his research into former House Speaker Jim Black's campaign finances and the latest complaint against New Hanover County democrat Thomas Wright.
