Brown donates funds raised from pharmacy
Senator Scott Brown will donate $10,000 of campaign funds to the Meningitis Foundation of America, money his campaign received from the owners and executives of the pharmacy linked to the national meningitis outbreak that has sickened at least 137 people and killed 12. The owner of the New England Compounding Center, Gregory Conigliaro, held a fundraiser in September with his wife Cynthia at their Southborough home, Brown’s campaign confirmed. The company’s injectable steroids have been traced to the outbreak. But the firm was not publicly linked to the outbreak until Oct. 4, after the fundraiser was held.
