Federal prosecutors have asked that Tom Noe be given more jail time than previously asked for due to the extent of his violations of campaign finance laws. From Yahoo:

Tom Noe, a high level fundraiser for Bush's campaign, was involved in a "systematic and pervasive corruption of the federal and state election process," prosecutors said in a court filing Tuesday.

He used friends and associates to give money illegally to three candidates for the Ohio Supreme Court and two who were running for governor, prosecutors said.

The documents filed in U.S. District Court did not reveal any names or the amount of money allegedly involved and did not specify how much additional time prosecutors think Noe should serve.

I don't think this guy is ever going to see the light of day again unless Bush issues a pardon before he leaves office. Good riddance.
