Another day, anotherformer campaign manager interrogated by the FBI.

U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris’ former campaign manager in her candidacy for Senate has been interviewed by federal investigators as part of an inquiry into her relationship with a convicted defense contractor, a newspaper reported Saturday.

Jim Dornan spoke to FBI and Defense Department investigators in Washington for about 90 minutes Thursday, the St. Petersburg Times reported.


Harris has been tripped up by her dealings with Mitchell Wade, a defense contractor who pleaded guilty to bribing a California congressman and admitted funneling $32,000 in illegal donations to Harris. She later said she gave the money to charity. Dornan was not Harris’ campaign manager when she accepted the donations.

The Justice Department investigation already has involved interviews with former top campaign strategist Ed Rollins and Fred Asbell, who quit in June as Harris’ chief of staff in Congress. Harris has said previously she is cooperating with the investigation but is “not a target.”
