DescriptionThe West Virginia gubernatorial race between acting Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, Republican challenger Bill Maloney and involving greyhound racing has taken a new twist.

A former Kansas greyhound kennel operator arrested Thursday in California on extortion charges has been linked to Maloney and the anti-racing group Grey2K.

According to a clerk at the U.S. District Court of Eastern California in Fresno, Harry Marshall Rae was taken into custody following his arrest in California on a warrant out of West Virginia. Rae allegedly tried to extort $50,000 from Wheeling greyhound owner Dean Miner.

Miner believes he was a visible target for the alleged extortion plot since he's a prominent greyhound owner on the national level and a past president of the Wheeling Island Kennel Owners Association.
