WASHINGTON (AP) Influential District of Columbia businessman Jeffrey Thompson was charged Monday with conspiring to violate federal and local campaign finance laws by funding off-the-books campaign activity for candidates including Hillary Rodham Clinton and district Mayor Vincent Gray.
Thompson, the multimillionaire former owner of a well-connected accounting firm, was charged in a criminal information, a charging document that can only be filed with the defendant's consent and typically signals a guilty plea. A court appearance was scheduled for Monday afternoon.
According to the document, Thompson funded illicit campaign activity for Clinton, Gray and seven other candidates for local office in the district. All told, the efforts, described previously by prosecutors as "shadow campaigns," were valued at more than $2 million.

That’s right Hillary. You can run from Obama, but you cannot hide.
Should have stuck with the “he was born in Kenya and I have proof” story.
Let's see if this Lib get's $ 500,000.00 bail like Dinesh D'Souza.
He sounds like a good choice for head of the FEC.
It’s rigged so that the money collector gets busted, not the candidate.
“Let’s see if this Lib get’s $ 500,000.00 bail like Dinesh D’Souza.
Well, 2 million is 100 times more than the $20,000 Dinesh is supposed to have been involved with, so the bail for Thompson should be $50,000,000.
LOL. That was my first thought.
