RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The man in charge of raising money for Senator Harry Reid's re-election campaign took the stand today in the Harvey Whittemore trial.
Whittemore is charged with illegally funneling money into Reid's campaign by writing checks to friends, family and employees and then getting them to donate the maximum amount.
Today on the stand, David Perry, Reid's former fundraiser testified that 32 people donated the maximum amount of $4,600 in 2007. Perry said all of those contributions were "attributed" to Harvey Whittemore in campaign documents.
The trial is now in its second week in federal court.
