Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price is at the center of new controversy after FBI agents raided Price’s home and office and those of two of his aides June 27.

According to Dallas CW Network affiliate KDAF, federal investigators combed Price’s home and searched through electronic storage devices for data dating back to 2001. The focus of the investigation is unclear and court records are sealed, but questions have surfaced regarding an unaccounted-for large sum of money connected to Price’s non-profit KwanzaaFest.

“For 27 years, I’ve represented my constituents and plan on doing so for the next 27 years,” Price said in a press conference following the raid. “I have no idea what this is all about.”

The KwanzaaFest, which Price founded, brought in over $1 million in 2009, according to Dallas NBC affiliate KXAS. The tax return for the event itemizes small expenses, including $33,829 for “advertising and promotion,” but the lion’s share of the cash, $930,258, is listed under “all other expenses.”

Price’s attorney, Billy Ravkind, said a federal grand jury requested detailed financial information for the event months ago.

Federal agents also searched the homes of Price’s executive assistant, Daphne Fain, the Kwanzaa event’s president, and his political consultant, Kathy Nealy, the event’s director.

Ravkind told KXAS that the tax confusion is a “nothing deal.”

Following the raid, Price reminded reporters that he’s worked as a Dallas commissioner for 26 years.

“I’m paid $100,000-plus,” he said.

Ravkind said he has hired an auditing team to sift through Price’s finances.

Fort Worth-based columnist Bob Ray Sanders called the investigation into Price’s finances “serious” and a “blow to the Black community.”

“I can see this happening more and more to their Black leaders,” he said on the Dallas TV show Nonstop Nightly. “Many people in the Black community think the federal government particularly goes after Black elected officials, when they don’t go after White elected officials and often for the same kinds of things that White officials do.”

Price is a polarizing figure who has engaged in passionate shouting matches with fellow colleagues and citizens at public meetings. He is the only Black commissioner for the county.
