Cam Newton News: FBI Reportedly Investigating Milton McGregor, Auburn Booster

The Cam Newton saga has gained another new character! TMZ, who has earned one credibility point on this matter so far by reporting John Bond was meeting with the FBI (which turned out to be true), now reports that dog track owner Milton McGregor is being investigated by the FBI.

According to this and other reports, McGregor has previously given more than $1 million to Auburn towards the construction of Auburn Arena, the school’s future basketball stadium, and was arrested and indicted last month for trying to buy pro-gambling votes. His attorney filed motions to have all that thrown out.

What does this have to do with Cam Newton? While we have no word on what McGregor is specifically being investigated for, the FBI’s alleged interest would presumably be in whether McGregor supplied money for Auburn to Newton. Kenny Rogers has admitted that Cecil Newton’s strategy with the Mississippi St. Bulldogs was to work MSU booster Bill Bell, so if Newton did indeed try to get money from Auburn, a booster like McGregor might know some things.

As always, these things may all be untrue and/or change tomorrow.
