Schenectady County's GOP Committee Chairman Tom Buchanan is accusing county Democrats of accepting an illegal $5,000 donation from a Canadian prescription drug company.
The accusation stems from a donation on October 22, 2007 by CanaRx Services, Inc., a Tecumseh, Ontario based company. Buchanan said he'll contact the Federal Board of Election and the U.S. Attorney General's Office urging them to launch an independent investigation into the fundraising practices of county Democrats.
County Democratic Chair Brian Quail said he was under the impression that CanaRx was a Michigan-based company. CanaRx officials said the company has a PO Box in Detroit.
\If we made an error we will refund the donation, said Quail.
