Matt Gaetz campaign gets $17K from Rockefeller heir who had contact with Russian agent

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz’s campaign reported raising $547,150 in the second quarter. Included in that pot are donations from an heir to the Rockefeller fortune who had contact with a Russian agent.

George O’Neill Jr. and his wife, Erica O’Neill, donated a combined $17,400 to the controversial congressman’s campaign on April 14. O’Neill is the great grandson of John D. Rockefeller Jr. 

The Lake Wales resident was revealed as one of the contacts of Maria Butina, who was convicted in 2018 of acting as a secret Russian foreign agent. He was named “U.S. Person 2” in court documents.
