He is not a candidate yet. I may sell Chinese shoes for a living, does this mean I can't run for office 2 years from now. I think 20k for a photo with Bush is worse than what Gore did. The Buddist temple was illegal and wrong because he was a sitting VP. Gore should be in a jail cell beside Maria Hsia for this. But the incident here is completely ok.
Regarding my acquaintance getting some "overlooking". I think the "overlooking" was the right thing in his case even if he did not cough up the 50k. But, Clinton is still a scumbag.

I agree. If anyone is stupid enough to pay me $20k (heck I'll take $1k) to have a photograph with me, I'm willing to take their money.
It ain't illegal to accept money from fools. Heck even conventional American/Christian morality codes as I understand them say its okay.
To take money from CHICOMS is all the better as it means less money in their hands to do bad things.
