ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley is donating $7,000 in campaign contributions to a group that provides venison to help fight hunger, after a donor who contributed the money to the governor’s campaign pleaded guilty to failing to pay employment taxes.

Rick Abbruzzese, a spokesman for the governor, said Tuesday the campaign has sent a check to Farmers and Hunters Helping the Hungry. He says the Rev. Rick Wilson was notified last week that the campaign would be making the donation.

Richard Stewart pleaded guilty last month to failing to provide about $4 million in employment taxes. Stewart had served on an advisory panel on legislative redistricting and on the Maryland Stadium Authority. O’Malley has said he didn’t know Stewart faced legal problems until it became public he had pleaded guilty.
