That's a peanuts amount, and I must say in the Kerry campaign defense that it's unreasonable to run a background check on every person that offers a contribution.

Now if 1000 Koreans who were members of a political action group seeking favors for Korea from a US candidate should he get elected, each gave $2000, then THAT would be a story.

How about $500,000?

In reply to: Peanuts

Read a little farther:

Chun Jae-yong was business partners last year with Rick Yi, one of Kerry's major fund-raisers in the Asian-American community. Yi acknowledged soliciting the donation from Chun last summer before learning of his legal problems.


"I didn't think anything wrong of it," said Yi, who has raised more than $500,000 for Kerry, the Democratic presidential challenger, and Democratic causes. Yi is listed as one of the campaign's fund-raising vice chairmen.

Of course, James...

Yes,it's not a lot of money, but thinking about past cases in somebody else, there are other things. Better money than something like sensitive technology to a country like China.

Hi, James.

Furthermore, the fund-raiser involved says the guy showed an SS card to prove he was a citizen and so legally allowed to contribute. I can dig up a link if necessary, but that's pretty much it...
