RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Terry McAuliffe is donating to charity funds tied to a wealthy hotel executive and Democratic fundraiser who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations.
An adviser to McAuliffe's political action committee said Thursday the governor will donate $4,300 to a nonprofit that provides free health care to the poor.
Sant Singh Chatwal pleaded guilty Thursday in New York to using "straw donors" to bypass campaign finance limits. He gave to McAuliffe's 2013 gubernatorial campaign.
Last month, McAuliffe donated $2,500 to charity after Washington, D.C., businessman Jeffrey Thompson pleaded guilty to several campaign finance violations.
Chatwal and Thompson were large donors to Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign. McAuliffe was Clinton's campaign chairman.
There's been no evidence that either Clinton or McAuliffe were aware of Chatwal or Thompson's wrongdoing.
