Strickland gives up Spitzer cash
The Associated Press reports:
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Gov. Ted Strickland is giving $10,000 in campaign cash from disgraced former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer to a food bank.
Spitzer resigned last week after revelations that he was caught up in a high-priced prostitution scandal. He gave Strickland the contribution for the Ohio governor’s 2006 campaign.
It was the biggest of the out-of-state political contributions Spitzer handed out across the country since 2004 to Democratic candidates and causes.
Strickland donated the money to the Tri-County Food Pantry, which serves Washington, Noble and Monroe counties in southeast Ohio.
