Guilty Plea for Illegal Campaign Contributions

A Kenosha, Wisconsin, businessman who worked for a trucking company entered a guilty plea to charges that he used a $250,000 fund for illegal campaign contributions by reimbursing individuals for making the donations to campaigns.  Over twenty state and federal candidates from both parties received the money, and it was directed to candidates who supported Indian gaming and changes to the trucking laws that would favor the defendant's employer.  A Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel story (here) and U.S. Attorney's Office release (here) discuss the guilty plea.
