Topeka Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is giving to charity a $500 contribution she received in 2006 from a major Democratic fundraiser who faces charges in California.
Sebelius' office said the contribution from Norman Hsu will go to Let's Help, a nonprofit organization that provides programs for low-income families.
Hsu faces grand theft charges stemming from a 1991 business deal. Hsu has said he thought the charges had been taken care of in bankruptcy proceedings.
Major Democrats, including presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, have also declared they will give to charity funds they received from Hsu.
