Colorado Republican Missed Court Date For Theft Charges Because He Was Jailed For Fraud In El Salvador
A former GOP treasurer from Colorado missed his November 16 court date in the state for charges that he spent $20,000 of the party’s funds because he was arrested in El Salvador under suspicion for a second fraud charge.
Jeff Fogg was arrested on November 17 in San Salvador under suspicion for a $100,00 fraud, according to The Pueblo Chieftan.
The report also noted that the former Republican treasurer owns property in the Central American country.
Due to missing his court date, a bench warrant was issued for Fogg, whose trial is supposed to begin December 11.
His Colorado charges center on accusations from the Pueblo County Republicans that he misused the party credit card and stole somewhere between $20,000 and $100,000 between April 2013 and July 2015, according to the report.
