Johnston County Elections Director Stole Funds


The Johnston County elections director resigned Friday after an investigation linked her to missing cash from the office -- more than $6,000 over five years.

County attorney Mark Payne said Teresa Davis, who had been director since 1998, was expected to begin repaying the money soon. He said his office would notify the county prosecutor.

An internal investigation showed the missing money included filing fees from candidates and notary fees.

Deputy director Leigh Anne Price was selected as interim director while the county elections board decides on a permanent replacement for Davis.

Davis was paid about $52,000 a year and had experienced financial problems, filing for bankruptcy last year.
