Former Brocade CEO Gregory Reyes, who was convicted in federal court last Friday on nine counts of security fraud, donated $75,000 to the RNC between 2003 and 2006, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Reyes's convictions marks one of the most high-profile victories for the government in prosecuting financial malfeasance. Reyes was convicted due to the practice of backdating, a process of listing options on a contract at a different date than they were actually offered.

The GOP donor's conviction also comes as a debate over financial reform legislation is set to take center stage in Washington when lawmakers return from recess.

Members of the RNC's communications staff did not immediately comment Tuesday afternoon on Reyes's donations.
