AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis' legal work for a taxpayer-funded tollway agency is part of a larger FBI-led investigation into the agency.
The Dallas Morning News reports that a 2012 conflict-of-interest complaint alleges that the state senator from Fort Worth voted on toll legislation while representing the North Texas Tollway Authority.
Investigators in Travis County reviewed the case last year but closed it without an investigation. The FBI, however, continues examining the matter.
Davis' legal work and political activities are part of that ongoing investigation. But it's unclear if they're the focus or only part of the materials collected in the case.
A Davis spokesman said he wasn't aware that she was the subject of any investigation. He denied that Davis' legal work conflicted with her senatorial duties.
