SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - A longtime Republican political operative, with ties to Springfield, pleaded not guilty to a federal charge of helping funnel Russian money to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Doug Wead lives in Florida. He served as a religious advisor for George H. W. Bush because of his ties to the Assemblies of God Church. He also wrote several books about faith leaders and Trump’s White House.
