Senator John Kerry, D-MA, unwittingly tried to help a Chinese espionage agent and arms dealer in 1996 in return for campaign contributions for his Senate reelection campaign, according to congressional and other documents, interviews, and photographs.
The arms dealer, the daughter of the man who was then the second-highest ranking official in China's military, did not get what she wanted -- a listing for her company on a United States stock exchange -- but Kerry was able to get her a meeting at the Securities and Exchange commission, after a business associate of hers provided him with campaign contributions and the promise of more help.

So arrest him. Or does the "New Jersey Rule" apply here?

Poor, poor "unwittingly" Kerry.
"...he relied on doing what every political candidate does: seeking big bucks contributions from people with deep pockets."
"Kerry could not have known..."
I guess that's because he's a Democrat and not a greedy Republican. If he were a Republican, we'd demand he prove his innocence.

Ya know, why doesn't he just name algore as his running mate and be done with it? It's frickin' 1992 all over again. And I'm not over the FIRST one.

...During our Battle to save the U.S. Long Beach Navy Base from being turned over to the Communist Chinese by the CLINTON White House for China Army Money...
...Orange County Congresswoman LORETTA SANCHEZ announced in 1997 she had received $1,000 in China Army Money during her first run for Congress in 1996. She also then announced that she was returning it immediately.
...She NEVER did return that $1,000 to JOHNNY CHUNG, per JOHNNY and the Orange County Register Newspaper.

"Unwittingly" as in no "wits about him?"
