Antonio Villaraigosa received $2,000, and Connell received $60,973 in laundered contributions.
Who else returned money?
Connell sent $22,000 to the state general fund, Parks sent the state the $4,000 cashier's check, and Villaraigosa paid back $2,000. Like Weiss, Delgadillo, Greuel, Hahn, LaBonge and Smith paid nothing because they were advised they did not have an eligible campaign account to tap.
