Whittemore Reports to Prison on California Coast

Posted: Updated:
Former Nevada lobbyist and developer Harvey Whittemore has reported to a minimum security prison on the central California coast to begin serving a 2-year sentence for making illegal campaign contributions.
 
U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke confirms Whittemore reported just after 10 a.m. Wednesday at the minimum security work camp at the federal prison complex in Lompoc, California just north of Santa Barbara.

The camp is about 480 miles southwest of Reno.

Whittemore was convicted last year of violating campaign-spending laws by using family and employees of his billion-dollar real estate company to funnel more than $130,000 to Sen. Harry Reid's re-election committee in 2007.
 
His lawyers are scheduled to make oral arguments for his appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Oct. 6.   (AP)
