RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A campaign finance reform group says an Oklahoma man facing racketeering charges in Florida over illegal gambling parlors gave more than $230,000 to North Carolina political campaigns over the past two years. Democracy North Carolina revealed Monday the donation amount attributed to Chase Burns following its review of both electronic and paper campaign finance reports. The amount is $75,000 more than what was reported when Burns was arrested last week. He's accused of owning parlors operated by a purported Florida-based charity. Burns' company is called International Internet Technologies. Gov. Pat McCrory used to work for a Charlotte law firm that lobbied for the company until last week. McCrory says he had no contact with Burns. His campaign gave $8,000 donated by Burns and his wife to a Durham homeless ministry. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
