The Washington Post reported Thursday that legal activist Leonard Leo instructed Conway, then a GOP pollster, to "give" Ginni Thomas "another $25K" in January 2012, emphasizing that there should be "no mention of Ginni, of course" in the paperwork.
Conway's firm, the Polling Company, billed a nonprofit Leo advises, then known as the Judicial Education Project, for $25,000 that day, the Post reported.
