Cain campaign paid groups reportedly under federal investigation

 The Wisconsin-based groups, Prosperity USA and Wisconsin Prosperity Network, were run by Cain’s top aides and footed the bill for about $40,000 of goods and services — including iPads and chartered flights — that helped Cain’s campaign get going early last year, according to documents obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

It would be illegal for the groups to donate goods or services to a presidential campaign, and Cain’s campaign last year said it had retained an outside lawyer to look into the matter.
