Minn. Lawmaker to Return Contributions From Indicted Senator

Wednesday, 01 April 2015 09:33 PM EDT

A spokesman for a Minnesota senator says the lawmaker will return campaign contributions she received from indicted New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez.

A campaign aide to Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar says Klobuchar will also return contributions from a Menendez friend and donor, Dr. Salomon Melgen, who was also indicted Wednesday.

Menendez is accused of performing political favors for Melgen.

Klobuchar matches the description of a lawmaker called "Senator 1" in the indictment.

The indictment says Menendez and Senator 1 agreed to raise $25,000 for each other during their successful 2012 re-election campaigns. It says Melgen and his wife ended up contributing $8,000 to Senator 1. Federal Election Commission records show Klobuchar received that amount from the Mengens.

Senator 1 is not accused of wrongdoing.
