Kerry Taking Money from Asians

Presidential candidate takes cash from koreans. That sounds a lot like other stories in the past.

I love this story:

John Kerry's campaign collected a maximum $2,000 check from the recently arrested son of South Korea's disgraced former president, and some of its fund-raisers met several times with a South Korean government official who was trying to organize a Korean-American political group.

I love this part too.

The Kerry campaign said it did not know about the $2,000 donation from Chun Jae-yong or his background until informed by The Associated Press and has decided to return the money to avoid any appearance of impropriety.

Translation: We got caught so we are giving it back so you can't yell at us.
They never should have taken it in my opinion.
