Harkin campaign aide gave Iowa State a donor list

Topics: From the Wires, ,

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Records show a top campaign aide for U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin gave Iowa State University a list of individuals and companies who would be solicited for donations to his namesake policy institute.

Harkin’s finance director, Jeremy Gold, sent a list of 13 individuals and 16 companies who might give to the Harkin Institute of Public Policy to a top official at the ISU Foundation in October. Earlier that month, Gold had sent the foundation proposed revisions to a fundraising brochure it’s using for the institute.

ISU refused to release the names of those on the list, saying they were prospective donors whose identities could be shielded.

University officials have promised the institute would be nonpartisan and free from Harkin’s influence.
