Major Kaptur donor sentenced to 27-month prison sentence

Paul Magliocchetti is sentenced:
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- A once-prominent Washington lobbyist was sentenced Friday to 27 months in prison for illegally funneling more than $380,000 in campaign contributions to House members controlling the Pentagon's budget.
A federal judge imposed the sentence on Paul Magliocchetti, who for two decades ran a top lobbying shop that worked with executives of Magliocchetti's defense contractor clients. The defense contractors hired the lobbyist for his influence with the late Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., and other key congressional players who earmarked funds for favored companies.
