This post originally stated that OhioWatchdog.org's Maggie Thurber was "among four Republicans convicted in 2006 on misdemeanor charges for illegally funneling money from a prominent coin dealer to the 2004 George W. Bush campaign." In fact, Thurber and the others were convicted for failing to properly disclose as gifts money they received from the coin dealer, Tom Noe. Reportedly acting as "conduits" for Noe, they then donated the money as part of Noe's plot to illegally funnel $45,000 to Bush's re-election effort. Media Matters regrets the error.
