Stanford’s Receiver Wants Contributions Returned

Feb 2009 // Associated Press

The court-appointed receiver for R. Allen Stanford’s financial group asked national political committees Monday to return campaign contributions from the disgraced Texas billionaire.

Thomas Ajamie, a Houston attorney representing some of Stanford’s customers seeking redress, said that Janvey’s attempt at recovering the contributions is “highly unusual.”

Ajamie said it’s unclear whether the committees or politicians would be legally required to return the funds and that Janvey’s move could be meant to “embarrass them into giving the money back.”
