Clean It Up!

Buckley Jr., William F.
April 1997
National Review;4/7/1997, Vol. 49 Issue 6, p58
This article discusses the campaign fund raising in the U.S. and the need for a federal legislation to prevent questionable campaign fundraising practices taking place in the White House. The article presents Vice President Al Gore's denial of any wrongdoing in connection with fundraising activities carried out by the Democratic Party. The author argues that the only way to repair the White House is by some kind of zoning law, forbidding it to become a branch of Walt Disney's empire. This simply cannot be done in the absence of inhabitants who have the right reflexes. President Bill Clinton sought the clever diversion of pointing to his opponents greater expenditures on the campaign.
