Paul Erickson is the boyfriend of convicted Russian spy Maria Butina.
The Republican with strong ties to the NRA (National Rifle Association) has now been indicted by a federal grand jury in South Dakota on charges of wire fraud and money laundering.
The indictment is separate from the charges that Butina pled guilty to. Erickson is accused of defrauding investors through a company called Investing with Dignity that dealt with specialized wheelchairs and a chain of assisted living homes called Compass Care.
Erickson is also charged with fraud in a real estate development in North Dakota.
