Magliocchetti, 64, pleaded guilty to illegally funneling more than $380,000 in campaign contributions to House members controlling the Pentagon's budget.
Before becoming a lobbyist in the late 1980s, Magliocchetti served as a staffer on the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, which for many years was chaired by Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., who died earlier this year.
Murtha collected $2.37 million in campaign contributions from Magliocchetti's lobbying team and the companies it had represented over the years, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks political donations.
