A top aide to Democrat Presidential candidate Tom Steyer allegedly has been offering campaign contributions to lawmakers in exchange for endorsing him, the AP reports.


The overtures from Pat Murphy, a former state House speaker who is serving as a top adviser on Steyer’s Iowa campaign, aren’t illegal — though payments for endorsements would violate campaign finance laws if not disclosed. There’s no evidence that any Iowans accepted the offer or received contributions from Steyer’s campaign as compensation for their backing.
