A federal grand jury slapped an Indiana casino executive with additional charges Tuesday for his alleged role in a scheme to funnel casino cash into an ex-state senator's failed campaign for Congress.

John Keeler was already facing four federal charges for allegedly working with out-of-state political consultants to recruit straw donors when the new charges were unveiled this week. Those straw donors funded former state Republican Sen. Brent Waltz's congressional campaign in 2015. They were then reimbursed with funds from Keeler's casino company New Centaur LLC, according to federal prosecutors.

Now the Justice Department says Keeler tried to use those contributions to lower his company's taxable income.

In a 2016 corporate tax return for New Centaur's parent company Centaur Holdings, Keeler listed a $41,000 company payment to the out-of-state political consultants as a deductible expense. He also amended a corporate tax return from 2015 to include deductions for $79,500 in company payments to the consultants.

But authorities believe those payments weren't deductible expenses at all. They believe they were funds the consultants routed into Waltz's campaign coffers through straw donors, which would make them political contributions. Campaign contributions can't be listed as a business expense under federal law.

I really admire your work, TC. Thanks for staying on top of the daily reminder of how s***ty and hypocritical the GQP is.
Sometimes I go about in pity for myself, and all the while, a great wind carries me across the sky.

Republicans need to be constantly exposed for their sins. I'm just doing what I can to remind people of that.
