Description

The Akron Beacon Journal documents the flow of money from special interest groups to state officials. Among the findings are free trips to Israel coupled with legislation that sent state funds to the country; a scheme that allowed Senate members to write off their income for federal tax purposes; and millions of dollars in contributions to the governor from people who recieved favors. As a result federal and state investigations begun, a state senator withdrew from the race for the US Sente and a tough ethics bill was passed, January - November, 1994.
