While We're Under the Hood . . .

Looks like el-Atari’s contributions aren’t the only questionable entries on Sheriff Simpson’s campaign finance reports.  In the same January 2011 filing, Simpson reported the return of a $1,480 to the Virginia Regional Transportation Association, a NON-PROFIT corporation that has made numerous contributions to Simpson's campaigns going back as far as at least 2007.  See reports here for a contribution in April 2010here for June 2010here for April 2008,  and here for 2008 in-kind contribution as a few examples.  Even considering the $1,480, it doesn't look like all the contributions were returned.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but aren't charitable organizations prohibited from making political contributions?  I'll leave it to other to connect the dots with respect to Virginia Regional Transportation.
