in federal court to a plan to not invoice union leader John Dougherty for the full cost of renovations to his home. (The two are not related.).

Check out the report for all the details. John Dougherty's spokesman Frank Keel sent us a statement, which read in part:

"Today, Donald Dougherty did what he believed was in his and his family’s best interests.  His plea agreement validates what we’ve been saying all along: that John Dougherty did nothing wrong and had no knowledge of Donald Dougherty’s plans or activities, either on the two remaining counts against Donald or the ninety-eight other counts to which he previously pleaded guilty. John never agreed or intended that he would get a deal or not pay anything other than fair market value for this job."
