Belated Disclosure (washingtonpost.com):

Former senator Robert G. Torricelli (D-N.J.) donated $50,000 to an anti-Dean advertising campaign.

According to the Post, the money was "not from his own pocket, but out of his leftover campaign funds. Mr. Torricelli, you will remember, had the cash to spare because he was forced to quit his reelection race after being 'severely admonished' by the Senate Ethics Committee for accepting expensive gifts from a campaign donor he was doing official favors for. Now a champion at collecting special-interest money is gathering checks for Mr. Kerry, who's busy railing against those interests. "
