DescriptionU.S. Rep. Roy Blunt should give to charity $13,500 either he or his political action committee took from "tainted" sources, said Mike Casey, director of the Campaign for a Cleaner Congress, a group that has liberal ties.

Casey said Friday that Blunt needs to give back $5,000 he received in April 2004 from the political action committee of ADCS, a defense contractor that was implicated this week when former California Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham resigned. On Monday, Cunningham pleaded guilty to taking $2.4 million in bribes in exchange for steering business to defense contractors.

Burson Taylor, a spokesman for Blunt, said Friday that Blunt was not giving back any of the money.
