Cancer Society rejects contributions from Milligan over campaign work by their employees

Posted By on Mon, Jun 8, 2015 at 12:38 PM

KATV reports that the American Cancer Society has returned unspecified financial contributions made by Arkansas Treasurer Dennis Milligan and his aide Jason Brady as recompense for any campaign work Brady might have done while an employee of the Cancer society.

It's been reported that Brady's Cancer Society e-mail, while he was an employee in 2014, reflected his work as a campaigner for Milligan, who hired him as a top aide after he was elected and took office.

To quiet the controversy, Milligan and Brady sent money to the Society, a nonprofit that discourages employees from engaging in partisan political activities. Though they didn't concede improper work had been done. Reports KATV:

ACSCAN's Associate Director Media Advocacy for the Southern Region, Ray Carson, tells KATV that while they did receive two separate donations from both Milligan and Brady last week, on Friday they sent a response letter stating they would be returning the donations.

This subject could develop further in a pending defamation lawsuit against Milligan by David Singer, another former Milligan campaigner who was fired from a job in the treasurer's office by Milligan.
