Young On Illegal Contributions: You Caught Me Too Late!

Rep. Don Young (R-AK), doing his part to keep Alaska at the vanguard of ethical blight, isn’t saying he shouldn’t have taken illegal contributions from the seafood industry — just that it’s too late to make him give it all back.

From Roll Call (sub req):

Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) has acknowledged taking more than $5,500 in illegal campaign contributions from a seafood trade association since 2001, but he has informed federal officials he will only pay back a portion of those funds because some of the violations fall outside the statute of limitations for campaign finance violations.

Way to err on the side of ethical.
