Court Investigating Candidate for Sheriff

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Clark County Courts are investigating a candidate for sheriff after the I-Team began asking questions about his campaign.

Family Court marshal Angel Barboza is running for Clark County Sheriff.

He hosted a campaign event Wednesday night.

The I-Team obtained an invitation to Wednesday's fundraiser that listed the fax number that belongs to the family court's office fax machine.

A court spokesperson confirmed the number listed on the fundraiser flier is a taxpayer-funded fax machine.

Late Wednesday afternoon, Clark County Courts announced it was investigating to see if the fax machine was used illegally.

Sheriff candidate Barboza tells the I-Team this is all an misunderstanding.

His campaign manager points to a receipt showing they paid an outside company to send the fundraising emails.

They suspect it may be a mix-up in how the fax was sent.
