ABSTRACT
South Korea's political scene is at risk of becoming so mired in scandal that voters lose interest, political parties lose cohesion, and President Roh Moo-hyun loses his job. Political fund raising is the focus of the nation's current scandal. Prosecutors are investigating allegations that advisers to the president as well as top members of all three major political parties accepted millions of dollars in illegal donations from the country's big, family-owned conglomerates, known as chaebol.
