-- Gov. Jim Doyle's campaign says it will return $10,000 in 2004 contributions from lawyers at a New York firm after a watchdog group pointed out the firm had been indicted in federal court this month.
"We have reviewed them, and we have elected to return these contributions," Doyle campaign spokeswoman Melanie Fonder said.
A report issued by the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign shows Doyle accepted $10,000 in campaign contributions in 2004 from lawyers at a New York law firm indicted by a federal grand jury for illegally paying people to participate in class-action lawsuits.
