A former top fund-raiser for politicians in Pennsylvania and New Jersey admitted a misdemeanor campaign violation yesterday, part of a plea deal in a case that involved illegal contributions to the governor of Puerto Rico.
Robert M. Feldman, 61, of Philadelphia, admitted that he helped conceal the source of $6,000 in contributions to then-Gov. Aníbal Acevedo Vilá, who was running an unsuccessful campaign for reelection.
Federal prosecutors dismissed a felony charge against Feldman, who was ordered to pay a $6,000 fine by U.S. District Judge Stewart Dalzell. Feldman received no jail time or probation.
