Alaska congressman racks up legal bills

Posted: Thursday, July 16, 2009

ANCHORAGE - U.S. Rep. Don Young continues to rack up legal bills as he seeks a 20th term in Congress.

In a filing with the Federal Election Commission, the Alaska Republican reported taking in nearly $115,000 in contributions in the quarter that ended June 30.

He entered the quarter with nearly $121,000 cash on hand, but paid out more than $108,000 since April 1.

Young reported he incurred more than $51,000 in legal fees to the Washington, D.C., firm of Tobin, O'Connor, Ewing & Richard during the quarter, and paid the firm $5,000.

Young was re-elected last year despite facing federal investigations of connections to Bill Allen, an Alaska businessman convicted of bribing state lawmakers, and a spending bill earmark that benefited a campaign supporter in Florida.
