Harry Reid super-PAC returned money from Miami donor Ibrahim Al Rashid-Did Patrick Murphy?

The donor, an old friend of Rep. Patrick Murphy, pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife.

A Democratic super-PAC influenced by Harry Reid is returning $100,000 given by a donor who pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife after The Hill alerted the group to the donation.

Senate Majority PAC, the super-PAC led by Senate Minority Leader Reid (D-Nev.), which supports Democrats running for Senate, had taken the money in late March from Miami donor Ibrahim Al-Rashid.

Al-Rashid, the son of a Saudi multimillionaire, pleaded guilty in 2014 to simple assault of his estranged wife, Morgan, who had served as Rep. Patrick Murphy’s (D-Fla.) finance director in his first campaign for Congress.

Al-Rashid, who is an old friend and major financial backer of Murphy’s, received one year of probation.
