Ex-lobbyist pleads not guilty

The owner of a now-defunt defense lobbying firm has pleaded not guilty to charges that he funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions.

Paul Magliocchetti entered his not guilty plea Friday at federal court in Alexandria, Va. Prosecutors allege that Magliocchetti, who had close ties to longtime former defense subcommittee chairman Rep. John Murtha funneled contributions to members of Congress under other people’s names.

Magliocchetti's son, Mark Magliocchetti, has already entered a guilty plea in federal court.

A trial date for Paul Magliocchetti was set for Oct. 5. He declined to comment after Friday’s hearing.
