Powerbroker Tied to Nevada Sen. Reid Goes to Court

Thursday, 07 Jun 2012 03:50 PM

 

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A former developer and lobbyist with long ties to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Nevada's political elite has turned himself in to federal authorities after being indicted on criminal charges involving federal campaign contributions.

Harvey Whittemore is expected to plead not guilty in Reno federal court Thursday afternoon. He was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday on four counts.

Prosecutors say he solicited campaign contributions from family members and employees in 2007 and skirted federal election law limits by reimbursing them. He's also charged with lying to federal agencies.

Authorities have not identified the recipient of the contributions that sparked the federal indictment.

While Whittemore made campaign contributions to other politicians, records show only Reid received donations of more than $100,000 on a single day in 2007.
