Mark Green Gives Up The Swag

On the day that Tom Delay's ARMPAC, under an agreement with the Federal Election Commission, agreed to pay a $115,000 fine and cease operation Mark Green finally decided to try to distance himself from Delay's money. Mark Pocan has the story of Green's, finally sucessful, attempts to give the money away.
From the AP via The Gazette:

The agreement resulted from an audit by the FEC of the committee's records for
Jan. 1, 2001 to Dec. 31, 2002. The audit found DeLay's committee had not
properly reported contributions, disbursements and cash on hand.
It also found the committee failed to properly report outstanding debts and obligations and did not follow federal rules for paying for shared federal and nonfederal activities.

Update: Mark Green may have more money problems. I'll grant that they are accounting troubles but shouldn't someone in his campaign know more about campaign law than just how to score Wizards tickets?
