More Coverage of Campaign Funds Going to Charities

Yesterday I blogged about a New York Times article reporting on former U.S. Senator Robert G. Torricelli's decision to direct his now dormant campaign account to transfer $1.6 million of its remaining funds to a charity he created and controls.  Further coverage of this story is available from the Washington Post and the Washington Times.  The Washington Post story also notes that Trent Lott, who left the Senate in December, transferred the remaining almost $200,000 in funds from his political action committee, the New Republican Majority Fund, to the University of Mississippi but still has $1.1 million left in his former re-election account.
