The campaign committee for New York State Comptroller H. Carl McCall is thinking about giving back a contribution from a municipal finance executive and former state official who made the donation during a fund-raiser co-sponsored by his wife, campaign officials said Friday.

The executive, Dall W. Forsythe, made a $250 contribution to McCall's re-election campaign on June 25, at a time when Forsythe was a municipal bond consultant for Lehman Brothers, according to state records. The contribution occurred only days before Forsythe became a full-time employee of the firm in its municipal finance division.
