Ohio fundraiser gets 18 years in prison

John Seewer at the Associated Press reports that Bob Ney, the former GOP fundraiser at the center of a scandal-plagued state investment in rare coins, was sentenced Monday to 18 years in prison.

Don' Tell the Donor had previously reported on this story in September when Ney was sentenced to twenty-seven months for funneling money to George W. Bush's reelection campaign. Today's sentencing was tied to Ney being found guilty of theft, corrupt activity, money laundering, forgery and tampering with records.
