SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A La Verkin man who raised money for the presidential campaign of Republican Mitt Romney has left the organization.
Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho says Robert Lichfield's work with the campaign ended in July.
At a single Utah event this year, Lichfield brought in about $300,000 for Romney.
Lichfield is the founder of the World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools. He and the association are among at least 140 defendants named in a federal lawsuit that alleges students at schools with ties were subjected to abusive treatment.
Representatives of the World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools have called the allegations ludicrous.
