According to several GOP sources, Shays campaign manager Michael Sohn is the one suspected of committing fraud against his boss:
Two Republicans familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the investigation is pending said the suspicions involve Michael Sohn, who was Shays’ campaign manager for the past several elections. Sohn left last week for his honeymoon in Asia and did not return telephone messages left on his cell phone.
Another person familiar with the matter said Sohn was traveling abroad with the full understanding of federal authorities. (AP)
What a terrible tragedy if it’s true. Sohn had been Shays’s campaign manager for several cycles, and apparently was someone the congressman trusted a great deal.
