Grand Jury Indicts Boston Developer For Illegal Campaign Contributions

This article is more than 7 years old.

A grand jury has indicted a well known Boston developer on charges of making illegal campaign contributions to win support for a major project.

The indictment accuses Arthur Winn of using other people as conduits to funnel $150,000 in donations to federal, state and local candidates.

That happened while Winn was trying to win approval for the now-defunct Columbus Center Project over the Mass. Pike.

The listed recipients of those donations include Sen. John Kerry, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, and four Massachusetts congressmen.
