    A former campaign manager for a Philadelphia city councilwoman has been sentenced to a year in prison on a wire fraud charge connected to the theft of $100,000 from the campaign and a union's political arm.

    Thirty-nine-year-old John D. McDaniel who pleaded guilty in February and was sentenced Tuesday in federal court.
     
    Authorities said the charges stemmed from his work for Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown and a Laborers Union political action committee, the Progressive Agenda PAC. 
     
    Prosecutors said McDaniel has agreed to pay restitution.  He earlier lost his $87,000-a-year job directing volunteers at Philadelphia International Airport.
     
    Defense attorney Charles Gibbs told KYW that it was ``a sad day'' for his client but he is ``looking forward to getting on with the next stage of his life.''
