Bush-Cheney Ohio Official Investigated for Illegal Contributions

Toledo Blade:

The federal probe into whether local Republican fund-raiser Tom Noe, right, was illegally funneling money to the Bush campaign had been ongoing for months. It reached a turning point Wednesday night.

FBI agents swept into Mr. Noe’s Maumee condo about 7:30 p.m., spending three hours scouring the home of one of the most prominent Republicans in northwest Ohio. They were looking for evidence of violations of federal campaign contribution laws…

Mr. Noe, 50, is a coin dealer and former chairman of the Lucas County Republican Party. He manages two rare-coin funds that have received $50 million from the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation. That investment arrangement is currently under a separate investigation being conducted by the Ohio inspector general.
