Paul Magliocchetti, the lobbyist recently indicted on eight counts of making illegal campaign contributions, spread his wealth to more than just Florida candidates. Both Hillary Clinton, who receieved $1,000, and the recently deceased Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, who also got $1,000, were also among those who received a chunk of Magliocchetti’s change.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Magliocchetti and company donated more than $792,000 to federal-level candidates, most of which was given in recent years. According to a blog on OpenSecrets.org, Magliocchetti and his ex-wives gave at least $475,000 since 2004.
In addition to funneling at least $3,000 to Florida Rep. Ander Crenshaw, R-Jacksonville, Magliocchetti gave Florida Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville, $1,000 and Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson a hefty $12,663.
In response to our piece yesterday on Rep. Crenshaw receiving illegal campaign funds, Crenshaw spokesperson Barbara Riley had this to say: “Previous contributions from Paul Magliocchetti that were deemed illegal were donated to charity prior to his indictment. Personal donations from Paul and Mark Magliocchetti will also be donated to charity.”
