FBI file: Steinbrenner blamed bad advice for conviction
George Steinbrenner blamed an illegal corporate campaign contribution to President Richard Nixon on bad legal advice, according to FBI documents released Monday.
Steinbrenner, who died last year after a tumultuous reign as owner of the New York Yankees, pleaded guilty in 1974 to a conspiracy to funnel corporate campaign contributions to politicians, and to making a “false and misleading” explanation of a $25,000 donation to Nixon’s campaign and trying to influence and intimidate employees of his shipbuilding company to give that false information to a grand jury.
