Summary WNBC-TV investigates corruption allegations involving Senator Robert Torricelli (D-NJ). The report features an interview with convicted fundraiser David Chang, who said Torricelli has helped him with multi-million-dollar business deals in exchange for cash and gifts totalling more than $150,000. However, according to the contest entry summary, "Torricelli was never charged with any crime; the Senate Ethics Committee reprimanded him for accepting just a few illegal gifts."
