Hyundai controller Paul Koh was found not guilty Thursday of conspiring to illegally contribute corporate money to the 1992 election campaign of Rep. Jay C. Kim (R-Diamond Bar). Immediately after he was acquitted of charges that could have landed him in federal prison for 10 years, Koh let out a loud moan of relief and hugged his attorneys, Jerome Roth and Bart Williams. His wife, Angie, sobbing with emotion, was removed from the downtown federal courtroom at the request of U.S.

A federal prosecutor and a defense lawyer made their final appeals Tuesday to jurors in the trial of the former campaign treasurer for Rep. Jay C. Kim (R-Diamond Bar), asking them to focus on whether the defendant intended to mislead the Federal Election Commission. "This is a case about a man who simply did not care about the rules and the law," Assistant U.S. Atty. Richard Drooyan told the jury. "He knew the information [about contributors] had to be reported, and he didn't want it reported."

Rep. Jay C. Kim (R-Diamond Bar) will give up $132,300 in proceeds from his autobiography because of concern about the ethics of book deals by elected officials, his aide said Thursday. Kim, a second-term congressman, decided to refund the money after consulting last May with the House Ethics Committee, said Matt Reynolds, Kim's administrative assistant. "The congressman worked with the committee and talked with its chairman, Republican Congresswoman Nancy Johnson," Reynolds said.

In the interest of fairness, the government agreed Monday to dismiss a jury's felony conviction of U.S. Rep. Jay C. Kim's campaign treasurer, allowing him instead to plead guilty to misdemeanor violations of federal election law. Chief Assistant U.S. Atty. Richard Drooyan said the unusual action was prompted by a recent government agreement that permitted Kim and his wife, June, to plead guilty to misdemeanors for essentially the same crimes.

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.

His lawyer, Lee Michaelson, said evidence would show Ma didn't commit wrongdoing knowingly.

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." Federal prosecutors said Wednesday that they will oppose any termination of Kim's probation, contending that his "already lenient" sentence would be "transformed into an exceptionally brief slap on the wrist."

Sometimes you've got to do what you don't want to do. Duty calls.

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 probe into Kim's 1992 campaign finances is still proceeding, just as it was two years ago. Kim's lone Republican rival in next week's primary, Upland businessman Bob Kerns, is arguing that the investigation is good enough reason to vote Kim out of office. "Truth and integrity.
