Herman Cain strategist Mark Block said on Tuesday that the campaign has retained outside counsel to examine reports that a charity illegally donated to the campaign.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on Monday that a tax-exempt charity founded by Block donated more than $40,000 worth of goods to the Cain campaign, which could be illegal.
“We have outside indie counsel to look at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story and report back to us,” said Block, appearing at National Journal’s Election Preview event.
He declined to say more, chastising the panel’s moderators when they pressed for further answers.
“Why don’t we talk about the campaign and going forward?” he said.
