PHOENIX (AP) -

An Arizona lobbyist who once represented the Fiesta Bowl and was accused of running an illegal campaign finance scheme on behalf of his lobbying firm has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of conspiracy to make a prohibited contribution.

Gary Husk entered his plea Monday in Maricopa County Superior Court.

Felony charges against him will be dropped and he must pay a $30,000 fine to pay for the costs of the investigation against him.

Husk was accused of using his firm's money to reimburse his staff members who made contributions to high-profile politicians, such as Gov. Jan Brewer.

He wasn't charged for actions he took on behalf of the Fiesta Bowl, though the scheme alleged in Husk's case was similar to a scheme that brought down the bowl's top leadership.
