Ex-Huntington Mayor Agrees to Fine in Ethics Probe


Former Huntington Mayor and Cabell County Sheriff Kim Wolfe has agreed to pay a $1,500 fine as part of a settlement of two ethics complaints.

The state Ethics Commission released an order yesterday in which Wolfe admitted to using county taxpayer dollars for mailings during his 2008 campaign for mayor and accepting tickets to Cincinnati Reds baseball games from a bank doing business with the sheriff’s office.

The Republican served as sheriff from 2001 to 2008 and as mayor from 2009 to 2012.

In addition to the fine, Wolfe also faces a public reprimand and must undergo state Ethics Act training.
