Description

The Times revealed how the Democratic National Committee, in its zeal to finance President Clinton's re-election, solicited hundreds of thousands of dollars in improper donations from foreign-linked corporations and individuals. The newspaper uncovered a river of Asian money that flowed into Washington from Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Tokyo and Beijing, often through California. Most of the dubious Democratic fund-raising was generated by John Huang, a Taiwanese-American fund-raiser who formerly worked for the Clinton Administration's Commerce Department where Huang was involved in a series of conflicts of interest. (Sept. 21 - Dec. 29, 1996)
