Santorum super PAC returns illegal foreign donation

A political action committee supporting Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says it has refunded a $50,000 donation from a London-based securities firm because the money came from a foreign source. Such contributions are illegal under U.S. law.

It was the first acknowledged evidence of foreign money in the 2012 presidential race.

A spokesman for the Red, White and Blue super PAC said the $50,000 donation from Liquid Capital Markets Ltd. came from an American executive at the firm but was returned because it was mistakenly drawn from the foreign firm's accounts.
