WASHINGTON - The Bush administration paid Armstrong Williams, a prominent Washington columnist, to promote its education policy, possibly violating U.S. law.
Williams has admitted taking money in return for spotlighting the so-called No Child Left Behind education initiative.
A number of federal laws prohibit taxpayer money being used to influence public opinion.
The story broke in USA Today's weekend edition, which followed a Freedom of Information request.
Williams received $240,000 U.S. for his help through a public-relations firm hired by the Education Department.
