Norton: No Thompson bundling, only ‘fundraising’

Bill Miller, spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office, declined to comment.

Others aren’t so sure that money from Mr. Thompson and his associates is “clean.” O'Malley spokesman Rick Abbruzzese last week explained the decision by Mr. O'Malley to return more than $30,000 in money tied to Mr. Thompson. “The contributions were not made illegally to Martin O'Malley, but given what we now know about the shadow campaign in D.C., the governor made the decision to donate the money.”

Campaign records show the bulk of the money tied to Mr. Thompson that was given to Mr. O'Malley came weeks before Harris and Mr. Thompson and his associates, along with family members, gave about $20,000 to the Norton campaign in the fall of 2010.
