Obama Appoints U.S. Attorney Who Contributed to His Campaign
by

President Obama on Friday announced the nominations of four U.S. Attorneys, at least two of whom made political contributions exclusively to Democrats, and one of whom contributed directly to his presidential campaign.

Timothy Heaphy, a Virgina lawyer who Obama has tapped to be a U.S. Attorney, gave $2,401 to Obama’s 2008 election campaign, and $5,101 total to Democrats over the past two election cycles, according to Federal Election Commission data.

Another nominee, Deborah Gilg of Nebraska, donated $1,750 to Democratic candidates.

Two other nominees, Daniel Bogden of Nevada and Peter Neronha of Rhode Island, were not listed in the contributions database.

UPDATE: Bogden was one of the attorney’s forced to resign during the Bush administration.
