PHOENIX (AP) - U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake says he’s donating campaign contributions he received from a white supremacist to a charity.

Monday’s action by Arizona’s junior senator comes after the Guardian newspaper reported that Flake was among the Republicans who received donations Earl Holt. Holt leads a white supremacist group cited by Charleston, South Carolina, church murder suspect Dylann Roof in an online manifesto.

Flake’s press secretary says he will donate the $1,000 he received in 2012 to the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund, which was set up to help the families of the nine victims of last week’s shooting.
