Cuccinelli gives up donation from Navy Vets figure

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says he will donate the $55,000 given to his campaign by the director of a Navy veterans organization that’s under investigation in several states.

The donation from Bobby Thompson, whose whereabouts are now unknown, was the second largest individual contribution to Cuccinelli’s campaign, reports The Roanoke Times.

Thompson had sought relief from Virginia regulation of charitable solicitations. He apparently fled after press inquiries questioning the legitimacy of the U.S. Navy Veterans Association.
