The FBI’s investigation into the Cam Newton scandal now involves a man who gave more than $1 million to Auburn University, and was recently arrested during a bribery sting. It is reported that FBI agents investigating the Newton recruiting controversy are also checking into Milton McGregor, a dog track owner who was arrested last month for allegedly bribing Alabama politicians to vote in favor of gambling.  It remains unclear whether McGregor had a direct connection with Newton. But it should be noted that this is not McGregor’s first large donation.  Back in 2008, he donated $1 million for the construction of the new stadium at Auburn.
