The House Ethics Committee has agreed that Rep. Jay C. Kim violated congressional rules of conduct by taking illegal corporate and foreign contributions, but has decided to take no disciplinary action because the Diamond Bar Republican is leaving office in January. In a 173-page report released via the Internet on Friday, the committee said its investigators had uncovered some improprieties outside the scope of the FBI's three-year probe of Kim's fund-raising activities.

The 1994 campaign treasurer for Rep. Jay C. Kim pleaded not guilty Monday to federal charges he received illegal contributions from seven companies and to an array of other allegations.

Rep. Jay C. Kim, convicted of campaign finance crimes, has asked to be relieved from supervised probation so he can move to South Korea to host a television talk show modeled after CNN's "Larry King Live."

In many ways, the political debate in the Republican contest for Congressman Jay C. Kim's seat hasn't changed much in the last two years.

A federal judge issued an order Tuesday that would effectively bar Rep. Jay C. Kim from campaigning in his district during the current Republican primary race. U.S. District Judge Richard A. Paez denied Kim's request to postpone implementation of a two-month home detention sentence until after the June election.

Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren on Thursday called for the resignation of Rep. Jay C. Kim (R-Diamond Bar), after his conviction on campaign finance violations, and endorsed one of Kim's opponents in the upcoming primary, Assemblyman Gary Miller (R-Diamond Bar). "These offenses constituted a willful pattern of illegal conduct which go to the heart of campaign laws," Lungren, a former congressman, said in a strongly worded statement. Kim's actions brought "dishonor" on the House, the statement said.

California Rep. Jay C. Kim's former campaign treasurer told a federal jury Friday that he reimbursed contributors with up to $18,000 of his own money and accepted cash donations in apparent violation of election laws because he never learned the rules and was prevented from questioning his superiors by Korean cultural mores.
