Del. Campaign Finance Investigation Ends

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A campaign finance investigation in Delaware has ended with an independent counsel finding no credible evidence that candidates for state office or their staffs knew about illegal campaign contributions.

The 101-page report by independent counsel E. Norman Veasey, a former Delaware Chief Justice, was released Sunday. Veasey and his team spent more than two years investigating after he was appointed by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden in 2011. More than 60 people were interviewed and thousands of documents examined during the course of the investigation.

The probe began after businessman Christopher Tigani pleaded guilty to using his family's beer distributorship to bundle hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal contributions to state and federal candidates.

The report includes a series of recommendations for campaign finance law reforms.
