Raimondo, GA leaders promise to donate contributions from indicted Twin River exec

By Katherine Gregg

PROVIDENCE The Rhode Island House speaker, the Senate president and the governor have all vowed to donate political contributions they received in recent years from former Twin River casino executive Michael Barlow, who was indicted on Tuesday for his alleged role in a kickback and bribery scheme.

Governor Raimondo intends to donate the $1,000 she received form Barlow to to the Rhode Island Food Bank, according to her spokesman, Josh Block.

House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello intends to donate the $1,500 that he received from Barlow to two nonprofit organizations in his home city of Cranston. He will give $750 each to the St. Vincent de Paul Emergency Food Center and the Cranston Animal Shelter, according to his spokesman Larry Berman.

Senate President Dominick Ruggerio told The Journal he intended to redirect the $500 he received from Barlow, and the $1,000 that Barlow contributed to a Rhode Island Senate Democrats PAC that he controls, to the Holy Family Home for Women & Children.
