Robert Wexler campaign aide got kickback in campaign deal; pleads guilty to tax fraud

From Broward Bulldog by former Herald reporter Dan Christensen: "An aide and fundraiser to former Congressman Robert Wexler has pleaded guilty to providing false information to the Internal Revenue Service about a $15,000 kickback she received for a controversial real estate investment by the South Florida Democrat’s campaign. 

"Daniella Howard, 44, of Pompano Beach, was sentenced by a federal judge to serve one year on probation and pay the government $3,200 in restitution. She could have drawn up to a year in prison and a fine of $10,000 on the misdemeanor charge."
