Md. Man Charged With Making Straw Contributions

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) - A man with ties to the businessman at the center of a wide-ranging investigation into D.C. politics has been charged with making straw political donations.

Federal prosecutors charged Lee Calhoun on Wednesday via criminal information, a document that typically indicates a defendant plans to plead guilty.

His lawyer, Edward MacMahon, said his client expected to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge next week and was cooperating with the investigation.

MacMahon confirmed that Calhoun had been an employee of the accounting firm formerly known as Thompson, Cobb, Bazilio and Associates, or TCBA. The firm, which authorities raided last year as part of the investigation, changed its name after Thompson left and sold his ownership stake.

He's accused of making contributions to unidentified political candidates, including one for the House of Representatives.
