McInnis Agrees to Return Fees to Hasan Foundation

Via the Denver Post, The Hasan Foundation has issued a press release stating since Scott McInnis didn't perform the work he agreed to do and since he has admitted his work wasn't fully original, it is requesting he return the $300,000 it paid him.

McInnis says he has agreed to repay them.

"I apologized to the Hasans for this mistake, and I expressed my determination to make it right with my dear friends," the statement read. "I will be in contact with the Hasan family to make full payment arrangements."

McInnis insists he's staying in the Colorado Governor's race.

Since he's canceled a few campaign appearances, sounds like he's hoping this will blow over if he just lays low for a while. Meanwhile, he's losing support among Republicans, who seem to prefer Tom Tancredo

    If he tries to pay it back with campaign money.  It wasn't a campaign contribution, it was a fellowship.

    And fellowships are taxed now (5.00 / 1) (#2)

    by the feds (for many years now), so he better handle it correctly, or he could land in tax trouble, too.

    It just gets better and better, doesn't it? :-)

    "You little fruitcake, you little fruitcake, I said you are a fruitcake" ... and now we know he's probably not even using an original recipe!
