O'Malley and Brown Return Money From Movie Producer

The campaign committees of Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) and Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) have returned nearly $100,000 to James G. Robinson, a movie producer who lives in Baltimore, because the contributions greatly exceeded what is allowed by law.

In a letter sent last month to Robinson, O'Malley's treasurer, Martin F. Cadogan, said that campaign officials had recently discovered Robinson was the sole stockholder in several corporations that contributed to the two committees.

Under Maryland law, corporations that share identical stockholders are viewed as a single entity and are limited to collectively donating $4,000 to a campaign committee during an election cycle.
