Man Accused Of Writing Bad Check To Pay For Campaign Signs
WARREN COUNTY, Tenn. – A Warren County political hopeful has been accused of passing a bad check to pay for his campaign signs.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said 26-year-old Kristopher Lynn Gore surrendered himself to agents at the Warren County Jail on Monday. He had been indicted on June 20 by the Warren County Grand Jury for four counts of Passing a Worthless Check, four counts of Theft, and one count of Forgery.
During the investigation that began on May 8, agents learned that Gore, who was pursuing a run for State Representative, wrote a worthless check for $13,500 to a McMinnville business to pay for his campaign signs.
Investigators also found that Gore created and forged a bank letter to try to show the account was in good standing.
He was later released from jail after posting $55,000 bond.
