Scott Gessler gets extension for response to ethics investigation

Secretary of State Scott Gessler is touring the state this week, soliciting feedback from voters on the election. But in the meantime, attorneys for Gessler, who is facing both criminal and ethics investigations into the alleged misuse of public funds, are asking for more time to respond to the complaint against him at the Independent Ethics Commission. The full filings are on view below.

And at this morning's IEC meeting, the commission decided to grant Gessler's legal team an extension -- but only for an additional two weeks and not a full month-and-a-half as the attorneys requested.
