Alaska congressman raises $130,000 during quarter

Posted: Tuesday, February 02, 2010

ANCHORAGE - An Alaska congressman under federal investigation reported no legal fees in the last quarter of 2009.

U.S. Rep. Don Young is running for his 20th term this year. The Republican is facing federal investigations of connections to an Alaska businessman convicted of bribing state lawmakers and a spending bill earmark that benefited a campaign supporter in Florida.

Young previously spent more than $1 million in legal fees. But a spokeswoman says the campaign has not spent money on legal fees since the second quarter reporting period. However, those payments were spread out over two quarters.

In a Federal Elections Commission filing Monday, Young reported net contributions of nearly $131,000 and expenditures of about $54,000, over a three-month period ending Dec. 31.

That leaves Young with a warchest of about $200,000.
