ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Senate candidate Michelle Nunn will be returning donations linked to a political operative convicted of bribery in 1995 who recently co-hosted a fundraiser for her campaign.

Nunn spokesman Nathan Click said Friday that Nunn was unaware of Virtual Murrell's criminal history and would not be depositing funds from him or anything he raised for Tuesday's event in Washington. Murrell, a former assistant to a city councilman in Oakland, California, was sentenced in 1995 to a year and a day in prison for accepting a bribe from a developer.

The fundraiser featured Nunn's father, former Sen. Sam Nunn, a moderate Democrat who represented Georgia for years. The Senate race is among a dozen being watched nationally as Republicans look to take control of the Senate.
