RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory says he has given to charity campaign cash he received from an Oklahoma man who has been charged in a Florida gambling probe.

Records show Chase Egan Burns of Anadarko, Okla., and his wife gave $8,000 to McCrory's campaign in October. Burns gave another $55,000 to the North Carolina Republican Party, and nearly $92,000 to GOP and Democratic legislators.

Burns and his wife are accused of owning gaming parlors in Florida that operated under Allied Veterans, a charity accused of being a front for a nearly $300 million gambling operation.

McCrory's spokeswoman said Thursday the governor gave $8,000 to a Durham homeless charity. House Democrats also announced they will donate their contributions.
