Fund-Raising Probe Request Rejected

November 10, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

In turning down the Common Cause request, the Justice Department said the group's allegations were not specific enough and did not name or link campaign officials covered under the independent counsel law to warrant seeking a special prosecutor.
