FBI's Cam Newton Probe Expands to Auburn Booster

11/17/2010 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The FBI investigation into the cash for Cam Newton scandal now involves a guy who gave more than $1 million to Auburn University ... and was recently arrested in a bribery sting.

Cam Newton Scandal Investigation
According to sources connected to the probe ... FBI agents looking into the Newton recruiting controversy are also asking about Milton McGregor -- a dog track owner arrested last month for allegedly bribing Alabama politicians to vote pro gambling.

We're told agents asked someone connected to the Newton case if he was familiar with McGregor or the bribery scandal.

It's unclear what, if any, direct connection McGregor has to Newton. Back in 2008, McGregor did donate a million bucks toward construction of a new arena at Auburn.

McGregor did not return a call for comment.

UPDATE 4:00PM PST: Milton McGregor's attorney tells TMZ his client has "never had any contact – direct or indirect – with Cam Newton, Cecil Newton, Cam’s father; Kenny Rogers or anyone purporting to represent Cam Newton."  He also says McGregor has never compensated student athletes at Auburn or any other school.

Bishop Cecil's church is no longer registered as a non-profit in the state of GA. The business registration for the SoS has not been updated since 5/08. This non-profit is not licensed unless it is shelled under some other church Cecil runs. His company New Jac and Associates was sued and later went under as well. My guess is that the FBI is looking into money going to a church that is not registered with the state.

Auburn has always cheated and this time they got caught. Auburn is a cesspool and never send your kids there if you want them to get a real job. Its the most backwards city in the country.

All of this media and fan attention to the so called Cam Newton scandal is a total waste of time and may do huge harm to innocent people. I am not an Auburn fan but I do emphasize with Newton and Auburn who are both most likely innocent. As it is all the Auburn and Newton haters consistently say they are quilty and all the supporters say they are innocent. Hell, no one knows and crazy attempts to use logic and insight (both worthless research tools)to find the answer is stupid. Play ball and let the chips fall where they may after a full investigation.

Bama wins another national championship and some Auburn booster decides that he will spend whatever it takes to try to get "The Barn" their first championship without an asterisk. He spends $200k and buys Cam,and now Fairley and Dyar are mad because they only received $100k. Auburn is one of the most investigated college programs ever and now since TT is gone, they are not as good as hiding it, so probation here they come. And with Coach Cals protege at the helm, the b-ball program is not far behind. You barners sit here and deny it but you are really sick at your stomach because you know it's true. You are like the little train that tried and tried but just couldn't get over the mountain. And by the way, if my fellow fans were Tammy and Charles from Reeltown, I wouldn't ridicule anybody.

After reading the [apparent & obvious] Alabama fanboy comments it confirms what my people tell me: Alabama fans really are ignorant, fatuous nut-jobs. (They all will think I am referring to their girth, because they do not have one dictionary between the dozen of them).
