FBI Looking At Katherine Harris' Relationship With Convicted Defense Contractor

I'm sure that the national GOP must be overjoyed that Ms. Popularity won the Republican Senate primary.

The former campaign manager of Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) has been interviewed by federal investigators looking into her relationship with convicted defense contractor Mitchell J. Wade, a newspaper reported Saturday.

Jim Dornan, who left Harris's U.S. Senate campaign in November, spoke to FBI and Defense Department investigators in Washington for about 90 minutes Thursday, the St. Petersburg Times reported. Dornan declined to comment to the paper, and messages left for him by the Associated Press were not immediately returned.

Wade pleaded guilty to bribing then-Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-Calif.) and admitted funneling $32,000 in illegal donations to Harris. She later said she gave the money to charity. Dornan was not Harris's campaign manager when she accepted the donations.
