Gov. Taft to donate Enron's money

        COLUMBUS — Gov. Bob Taft will give up $5,000 in campaign contributions from Enron Corp.

        Mr. Taft, a Republican, received the money in three contributions, said Mark Weaver, a Taft campaign consultant.

        They were made in 1998, 1999 and 2000, according to the Helena, Mont.-based National Institute on Money in State Politics.

        Mr. Weaver said Mr. Taft hoped to give the money to a charity that would help Ohioans hurt by Enron's collapse. He said Mr. Taft had not yet found such a charity.
