RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to order ex-Nevada lobbyist Harvey Whittemore to begin serving his two-year prison sentence for breaking campaign finance laws.

This sentence takes place on the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court issuing a major ruling on campaign spending limits. Whittemore's lawyers believe the court's ruling on Wednesday supports the appeal of his conviction for funneling over $100,000 to Senator Harry Reid's campaign in 2007.

U.S. Attorney Dan Bogden says the justices upheld limits on individual contributions to individual candidates. Meaning, the law Whittemore broke still stands, and a date should be set for him to surrender to U.S. Marshals.
