Description

The Star finds that Sen. Bob Dole's presidential campaign collected tens of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions, most of which were engineered by a vice-chairman of his campaign. The campaign official, who was a Boston millionaire hoping to win a foreign ambassadorship, funneled the cash through a Hong Kong bank account, then through employees of his company. In a separate scheme on the opposite side of the continent, a Las Vegas company that opposed a national tax on casinos unlawfully paid its executives and their wives to contribute to Dole. The total in illegal contributions exceeded $132,000. (April 21 - October 24, 1996)
