Political groups and politicians have not returned more than $1.8 million in tainted campaign donations received from entities and individuals linked to the alleged Allen Stanford Ponzi scheme, according to the court-appointed receiver in the civil case against Stanford.
Ralph Janvey, the receiver, said only $87,800 had been returned by politicians. Letters requesting the money be returned went out 11 months ago.
The donations were linked to Stanford personally, Stanford International Bank Ltd., Stanford Group Co., Stanford Capital Management LLC, and Stanford executives James M. Davis and Laura Pendergest-Holt and certain entities they own or control, Janvey said.
