State Auditor asks Team Mingo Member to resign from County Commission


WV MetroNews – State Auditor Glen Gainer has sent a letter to Mingo County officials, increasing the pressure on Commissioner David Baisden to resign or be fired.

Baisden pleaded guilty last week to a federal extortion charge for his attempt to use his position to try to get a price break on a set of tires for his personal vehicle.  Baisden is also identified as a co-conspirator in the charges that brought down former Mingo County Judge Michael Thornsbury.
