Giffords' office helps ID theft victim get married

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tuesday was a special day for a Southern Arizonan who thought his life was destroyed by identity theft.

John Fulton tied the knot Tuesday at the old county courthouse in downtown Tucson. The wedding was postponed because someone used Fulton's identity to take out $90,000 in student loans.

Congresswoman Giffords' office helped Fulton clear his name, after other agencies wouldn't help.

Also as a result of the identity theft, Fulton was unable to get the security clearance needed for his work at the Department of Defense.

Two weeks ago the forgery was confirmed and he's working security at Davis-Monthan Air Force base.
