Muncie Mayor Sharon McShurley has filed an ethics complaint against Delaware County Prosecutor Mark McKinney, claiming he diverted money to a police drug task force that should have gone into city coffers.
McKinney says he did nothing wrong and says the complaint is politically motivated. McShurley is a Republican and McKinney is a Democrat.
McShurley says some profits from drug money and auctioned property should gone to the city to reimburse it for costs related to the drug investigations. The grievance didn't specify how much money McShurley believes the city should have received.
McKinney says he's considering a defamation lawsuit against McShurley.
