RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory's campaign is purging another political donation tied to Internet sweepstakes cafes.

McCrory spokeswoman Kim Genardo said Tuesday the Republican governor's campaign will give $2,000 to charity, offsetting an Oct. 19 check from Sherry Upchurch of Ramseur. Her husband, Richard Upchurch, was indicted in Ohio in May on charges related to laundering money from an illegal gambling operation.

Earlier this month, McCrory announced his campaign would disgorge $8,000 from Chase and Kristin Burns. The Oklahoma couple were among 57 people indicted in Florida related to a chain of sweepstakes cafes affiliated with Allied Veterans of the World. Prosecutors said only about 2 percent of the $300 million raised through the bogus charity actually went to help veterans. McCrory has said he had no contact with Burns.
