HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – A political action committee that gave $125,000 to the failed gubernatorial campaign of former Pennsylvania Treasurer Rob McCord is revealing the source of its money eight months after the deadline to report the information.
A report by The Enterprise Fund appeared on the Pennsylvania Department of State’s website Friday.
McCord resigned last month as Pennsylvania’s elected state treasurer and signed an agreement in federal court to plead guilty to extortion charges for using his office to try to strong-arm contributions to his gubernatorial campaign.
The Enterprise Fund’s report shows that it received $100,000 from Ross Nese of Pittsburgh and another $25,000 that filtered through two other political action committees after being given by Vahan and Danielle Gureghian of suburban Philadelphia.
Vahan Gureghian is active in Montgomery County’s Republican Party.
