RYE BROOK - Sources tell News 12 state Sen. Greg Ball (R-40th District) is being investigated for misusing campaign funds.

Sources say Ball used campaign funds for personal expenses, like expensive suits and clothing. Other sources say because of the investigation, Ball's donors have backed out and will not help him seek re-election. Ball has already confirmed he will not run in a Republican primary for Putnam County executive.

The high-profile Republican also did not attend the GOP Convention in Rye Brook this week. Ball will hold a press conference tomorrow, where it is speculated that he will announce he is not running for any office.

David Laska, of the NY Republican Party, says party leaders are not aware of any investigation into Ball and they do not know if he will be running for anything this year.
