State GOP chair donated to Democrats
Maginn contributed to Patrick, N.Y. senator
The Massachusetts Republican Party’s new chairman, Robert A. Maginn Jr., gave Democratic Governor Deval Patrick $500, the maximum allowable under state law, during his reelection campaign last year. It wasn’t the first Democratic contribution made by Maginn, the CEO of the software company, Jenzabar Inc. In 2009, he gave $2,400 to Democratic U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York, a frequent target of conservatives.
