Another Harris aide talks to investigators



Federal investigators interviewed U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris’ former campaign manager as part of an on-going federal inquiry into her relationship with a convicted defense contractor.

Jim Dornan, who left Harris’ U.S. Senate campaign in November, spoke to three investigators from the FBI and the Defense Department in Washington for about 90 minutes at an FBI office Thursday afternoon.

The Justice and and Defense departments are examining Harris’ dealings with Mitchell Wade, who made illegal campaign contributions to Harris and later asked her to help secure $10- million in federal money for a company project.

Dornan is the fifth former staffer to be contacted. Read more in Saturday's paper.
