N.J. Democratic fund-raiser sentenced to 2 years in prison for mail fraud
NEWARK, N.J. -- A Democratic fund-raiser and acquaintance of ex-Gov. James E. McGreevey was sentenced to two years in prison Thursday for soliciting $40,000 in cash and political contributions in return for his help in a land deal.

McGreevey was not charged in the case involving David D'Amiano, but it was one of several scandals swirling about the governor before his Aug. 12 bombshell announcement that he was gay, had an affair and would resign.

D'Amiano, 45, pleaded guilty in September to two counts of mail fraud. The original July 7 indictment also accused him of extortion and bribery.

Prosecutors charged that D'Amiano demanded campaign donations from Mark Halper, owner of a 74-acre farm in Piscataway, in exchange for helping Halper get a favorable offer from county officials for rights to preserve the farmland
