KFDM/Fox 4 learns Texas Rangers seized campaign finance information from Jefferson County

KFDM/Fox 4 learns Texas Rangers seized campaign finance information from Jefferson County

Breaking news tonight involving a grand jury investigation based in Chambers County, and indications it may involve matters out of Jefferson County.

The grand jurors left at about 5:30 and the Texas Rangers were providing security.

The D.A. also confirmed the Texas Attorney General's Office based in Austin is overseeing the grand jury presentation. She says Chambers County provided the venue and the grand jury. The grand jury itself is made up of men and women from Chambers County.

There is no confirmation of the nature of the investigation from the District Attorney.

We've spoken with Jefferson County Clerk Carolyn Guidry who told us it has nothing to do with her or her office, but she confirmed "the Texas Rangers pulled campaign finance reports from our District Clerk's Office about a month ago . They requisitioned some campaign finance reports for our office involving political races. They involved campaign donations from a businessman and that they may have exceeded the legal amount of $100 for cash donations."

Guidry told us she didn't know there was a grand jury investigation.
