Ohio Gov. Gives Away Spitzer Cash

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland is giving a food bank $10,000 in campaign cash he got from former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

Spitzer resigned last week in a prostitution scandal.

He gave Strickland the contribution for the Ohio governor's 2006 campaign. It was the biggest of the out-of-state political contributions Spitzer had handed out to Democratic candidates and causes across the country since 2004.

Strickland donated the money to the Tri-County Food Pantry in southeast Ohio.

Strickland has been floated as a possible vice presidential running mate for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton should she win the Democratic nomination.
