MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A prominent Missouri financial adviser and campaign fundraiser for President Barack Obama has pleaded guilty to interstate stalking.
Federal prosecutors said during a Friday hearing in U.S. District Court in Memphis that Nadia Cavner harassed the former boyfriend of her daughter. The harassment included hiring investigators to plant recording equipment in the man's Memphis home. She also had someone leave demeaning voicemails on his phone and harassing letters in his mailbox at the University of Memphis.
Prosecutors recommended a sentence of probation.
The website for Cavner's firm, the Nadia Cavner Group, says she is an adviser with Cambridge Investment Research, the brokerage arm of BancorpSouth in Springfield, Mo.
Cavner organized a fundraiser for Obama in Springfield in July 2008. The Washington Post reported the event raised $250,000 for the campaign.
