Another Guilty Plea Links to More Federal Contributions

An individual contractor of Washington businessman Jeffrey Thompson’s old firm has pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court to acting as a straw donor using corporate funds for contributions to federal candidates and committees, among others.

Stanley L. Slaughter pleaded guilty yesterday to a misdemeanor count of making contributions in 2010 to Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., and Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa. Slaughter made $132,600 in contributions under his name and the names of others, when the funds came from Thompson’s accounting firm.

Earlier postings detailed the statement from the accounting firm, and the actions of employee Lee A. Calhoun, who contributed $160,000 in contributions and pleaded guilty last week.
