    Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.), who says he is the first and only Chinese-American to serve in the House, has raised funds from Chinese-Americans across the country. Now, his Iranian-born Republican challenger is using a similar tactic in her own fundraising. Goli Ameri, a telecommunications consultant, has used her connections within the Iranian-American community to raise money for her campaign to unseat the third-term Democrat. Ameri has raised over $550,000 from Iranian-Americans, according to her campaign. Early in the campaign, Tim Phillips, one of Ameriís opponents in the May 19 primary, suggested that because of her Iranian descent, she would not...

    Before declaring herself a candidate for Oregon's 1st Congressional District, Goli Ameri made a few discreet inquiries: Would voters accept someone born in Iran, a country that President Bush identified as part of the "axis of evil?" The positive response, she says, was "phenomenal." Today Ameri, who has never held public office, is in a competitive race against three-term incumbent David Wu. After trouncing two opponents in last spring's Republican primary, Ameri is waging a well-financed campaign that portrays Wu as a liberal Democrat out of touch with a district buffeted by economic recession -- be it in high-tech Washington...

    [In 1976]...the 21-year-old Wu was brought to the campus police annex after his ex-girlfriend said he tried to force her to have sex, according to Raoul K. Niemeyer, then a patrol commander who questioned him. Wu had scratches on his face and neck, and his T-shirt was stretched out of shape, Niemeyer said. Earlier, someone had interrupted a scuffle in the woman's dorm room. A Stanford professor said the woman told him the next day that Wu had angrily attacked her. An assistant dean who counseled the woman for two months said that the woman called it attempted rape and...

    Goli Ameri is an Iranian-American telecommunications consulting firm owner and Republican candidate for Congress (OR-01).

Ameri hopes to attract moderates in the district with her realistic positions on critical issues such as the economy, jobs, education, and healthcare. Ms. Ameri is the founder and President of eTinium, a consulting...
