Indicted Romney Finance Co-Chair Resigns
Lost amid the Ames Strawpoll activity today, Mitt
Romney's campaign has announced the resignation of its
national finance committee co-chairman, Alan B.
Fabian, who was indicted in Maryland for "allegedly
shady business dealings." Romney will return Fabian's
$2,300 campaign contribution.
"Federal prosecutors have charged Fabian with
defrauding companies out of $32 million. He was
indicted Wednesday by a Maryland grand jury on 23
counts, including mail fraud, money laundering,
bankruptcy fraud, perjury and obstruction of justice,
according to the Baltimore U.S. attorney's office."
