Major Democrat Donor Indicted

Today, Talking Points Memo reported that donor Kareem Ahmed, a major Democrat donor, was indicted this week by an Orange County, CA grand jury. Ahmed’s offices were raided by the California District Attorney’s office in October 2013, though the original reason for the investigation was unknown. According to today’s report, Ahmed stands accused of conspiracy, insurance fraud, and involuntary manslaughter.

Among those who have received campaign contributions from Ahmed are Iowan Senate candidate Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-1), who received $5,000, Democrat challenger for California’s 31st district Pete Aguilar, who received $7,700, and Rep. Julia Brownley (CA-26), who received $2,600.
