FBI Arrests Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse

Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse has been arrested by the FBI on federal charges related to his alleged misuse of political campaign funds.

The Thursday morning arrest caps two years of investigations into multiple allegations of domestic abuse. Morse was elected Mayor in 2015.

The Times Union says Morse's longtime Campaign Treasurer, Ralph Signoracci, has been a part of the FBI's investigation. He's reportedly met with authorities several times.

Morse is scheduled to appear in US District Court in Albany Thursday afternoon.
