BATON ROUGE- A political consultant is clear of accusations he paid for a slur-campaign against the mayor of Baton Rouge.
The State Board of Ethics dismissed campaign-finance violations against Scott Wilfong. But former City Councilman Darrell Glasper could face criminal charges because of fliers in the 2008 mayoral campaign that accused the mayor of having an affair.
Board President Frank Simoneaux says Glasper admitted to board investigators that he ponied up the payments for the pamphlets. Simoneaux says that information is going to the District Attorney's office.
Glasper told News 2 he can't comment on something he hasn't seen or hasn't been notified of.
D.A. Hillar Moore told News 2 his office has not received any information on the case. The Board of Ethics says it can't comment on how the case, involving Glasper, will proceed.
