S. Rept. 105-167: Investigation of Illegal or Improper Activities in Connection with 1996 Federal Election Campaigns, Final Report of the Committee on Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, Together with Additional and Minority Views, Volume 2 of 6, March 10, 1998   [open pdf - 982KB]

This is the second volume of the "Investigation of Illegal or Improper Activities in Connection with 1996 Federal Election Campaigns." From the Document: "The fundraiser attended by Vice President Gore on April 29, 1996 at the Hsi Lai Temple in Hacienda Heights, California, has been the focus of considerable attention and controversy ever since reports first surfaced in the national press revealing that some of the donations given to the DNC [Democratic National Committee] in connection with this event were unlawfully reimbursed.1 Over the course of its investigation, the Committee has examined the various allegations of illegality and impropriety that have surfaced in connection with this event. Furthermore, the Committee has conducted a broader inquiry into the unlawful involvement of the Hsi Lai Temple in the 1995-96 election cycle and the complex chain of events that produced this involvement. As a result of these inquiries, it has become apparent that the DNC's Hsi Lai Temple fundraiser on April 29, 1996 was merely one instance--albeit the most significant one--in an ongoing campaign of illegal Temple donation-laundering arranged by a woman named Maria L. Hsia in support of Democratic candidates."
