John Kerry's special interests 

Michael Isikoff catches Kerry in a lie about his meeting with one of his donors, Johnny Chung, who later plead guilty to funneling illegal contributions from Chinese government officials to Kerry. Kerry had claimed that he had never met Chung prior to a Kerry fundraiser Chung attended and was unaware of where the money came from, but Isikoff found documents showing that they did meet and that Kerry knew Chung would be interested in giving money to Kerry's campaign. In exchange, Kerry got Chung and Liu Chaoying, a lieutenant colonel in China and owner of a Chinese government-owned company, a meeting with the SEC during which Liu tries to get her company listed on the U.S. Stock Exchange.

I hope Kerry wouldn't be so shameless as to complain about Bush's special interests in the immediate future.
