Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli is setting aside $55,000 in campaign contributions from the director of a veterans organization that is under investigation.
Regulators in a handful of states are investigating fundraising and spending by Bobby Thompson and the United States Navy Veterans Association. In Virginia, the investigation is being handled by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Charitable organizations that raise money in Virginia are required to register with the department.
Cuccinelli's campaign committee says if it's determined funds were misappropriated from the veterans group to Thompson, the contributions will be donated to military support organizations.
