Albany-- Albany's Mayor got a campaign contribution from a the leader of a company now hired by the City. But the Mayor says he didn't even know about the donation.

In January, city commissioners voted to hire Atlanta based Resurgens Risk Management, an insurance consultant group. A few weeks later, company CEO Willie Burks gave the Mayor's campaign one thousand dollars.

But Mayor Willie Adams says the contribution had nothing to do with the contract. He says he had never met or spoken with Burks when Burks sent the contribution to Adams' campaign headquarters.

In fact, Adams says he didn't even know about the contribution until the media starting questioning him. The Mayor also said today, "That the thought I would compromise my integrity for $1,000 is ludicrous. I have thankfully been blessed more than that."
