Wealth Manager Pleads Guilty in Scheme to Fund Hillary Clinton Campaign Through Elton John Concert

WASHINGTON — The operator of a wealth management firm pleaded guilty Monday in Washington federal court to causing the Hillary Clinton for President Committee to unwittingly submit false statements to the Federal Election Commission involving campaign contributions totaling $48,300. The scheme involved an Elton John concert.

Evan Snapper, 46, of Fairfield, Conn., pleaded guilty in a scheme in which 21 individuals bought Elton John tickets for $2,300 each, knowing they would all be reimbursed by one person, and the money would go to the Clinton campaign,  the Justice Department said.

According to authorities, Snapper admitted that in March 2008, he informed a certain individual that Elton John was to perform in New York City on April 9, 2008, with ticket proceeds going to the Clinton committee.

Knowing the individual was a Clinton supporter, Snapper suggested he get people to buy tickets.

Authorities said Snapper admitted that he and 20 people agreed to purchase a ticket to the concert, knowing the individual would reimburse them in violation of campaign finance laws.

Snapper then worked to disguise the reimbursements. False statements were subsequently made to the Federal Elections Commission, authorities said. Snapper also pleaded guilty to campaign violations involving Jim Gilmore campaigns for Senate and President.

Sentencing is set for April 7.
