TBI Charges Man With Stealing Fundraising Money Allocated For Political Event In Kingsport

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday arrested the individual said to be responsible for stealing money that was raised by a political action group in charge of organizing a GOP Presidential forum scheduled be held in October, 2011 at the Meadowview Convention Center in Kingsport. The event was never held.

Fabian Farrell Story, 36, of Greeneville was indicted by the Washington County grand jury in November of 2012 on one count of theft over $10,000. Story was the executive director of the group called Conservatives on the Move that was allegedly coordinating the political event.

The TBI said Story contacted Johnson City political activist Phyllis White on July 1, 2011 to help him raise money and organize the event. Ms. White raised approximately $30,000 and deposited it in a Washington County bank. The TBI investigation revealed that Story withdrew the money, the event was never held, and money was not refunded to the donors.

Story was arrested by the TBI Wednesday at the Rutherford County Courthouse where he was appearing on a child support case. He was booked into the Rutherford County Jail on $10,000 bond and will be transported to the Washington County Jail on Thursday.

Roy Exum: The Testerman Forum

I badly misjudged how long it would take me to do my “early voting.” I was in-and-out in no time so I got to the Hamilton County School Board’s agenda meeting well enough beforehand to have an “educational forum” with board member David Testerman. If you haven’t noticed, forums and summits and “community enlightenment” groups are the new rage and, as my friend David laughed, “They ... (click for more)
