Herb Vederman, one of the alleged co-conspirators in the corruption case charging U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah Sr., has long been a contributor to political campaigns in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania.

He has donated $92,000 to numerous candidates since 2006, according to campaign finance records.

This year, political beneficiaries have included mayoral candidates Jim Kenney and Lynne M. Abraham, Council candidate Blondell Reynolds-Brown, and Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro.

Kenney received $2,000, Abraham got $1,000, Reynolds-Brown received $1,000, and Shapiro received $5,000, according to campaign finance records.

Last year, Vederman gave $11,000 to Gov. Tom Wolf during his successful bid to unseat Tom Corbett.

A spokeswoman for Kenney said Vederman and the Democratic nominee for mayor have known each other for decades.

"They've been acquaintances since the Rendell days. He was on our call list because he gives frequently to campaigns," Kenney spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said, speaking of Vederman's rise in political circles during his stint as a deputy mayor in Mayor Ed Rendell's administration.

Shapiro did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Reynolds-Brown, who worked for Fattah's state senate office from 1992 to 1996, declined to comment.
