COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A Democratic candidate for Ohio governor is calling corruption allegations against her contained in court documents filed several years ago but recently made public baseless and untrue.

Nan Whaley is the mayor of Dayton and a candidate for governor.

She says unfounded claims were made against her in a federal investigation into illegal activity in Dayton and nothing was found.

Whaley was never charged.

Whaley said Wednesday she only learned of the mention of her name in federal search warrant affidavits this week.

Whaley said she was never a target of the investigation and federal prosecutors say the investigation is not ongoing.
