A 25-year-old man was killed and another critically injured Saturday when the vehicle they were riding in crashed, police said. Daniel Levian, of Beverly Hills, died of "multiple blunt force injuries," according to the autopsy performed Monday, said Lt. Fred Corral of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Investigations Division. Police are considering alcohol as a factor in the wreck, said Sgt. Jay Kim of the Beverly Hills Police Department. The driver, Sam A. Moghimi, who suffered moderate injuries in the crash, was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter, Kim said.

More than half a century ago in Seoul, Jay C. Kim's mother had an auspicious dream about the baby she was carrying. A maiden in flowing Korean attire offered her three magnificent jade hairpins, and she chose one. Catching a glimpse of herself in a mirror, she was pleased. Awakening, she was certain that her child would be special. Last year, Kim rose to the U.S. House of Representatives, the first Asian immigrant elected to Congress.

Re "Kim May Run Again," Dec.4 I live in former Rep. Jay Kim's district, and I can assure him he did not lose because he did not campaign. He lost because he was a crook, and the people of the 41st District knew that he was a corrupt politician. I am glad that he "fulfilled his campaign promises" to us; too bad he didn't promise to be honest. His comment that he did not know if his committee paid the $170,000 fine shows how sincere his concern really is. Life is not "a mystery," Mr. Kim, it is full of realities.

In a widening probe of campaign fraud by South Korea-based companies, a federal grand jury Wednesday indicted Samsung America on a charge of illegally funneling contributions to California Rep. Jay C. Kim. A month ago, two other Korea-headquartered companies, Hyundai Motor America and Korean Air Lines, pleaded guilty to similar charges and paid fines totaling $850,000, the largest ever levied for campaign finance fraud.

FBI agents searched the offices of JayKim Engineers Inc. in Diamond Bar earlier this week, hauling off documents and computer equipment during a raid of the corporation that was owned until recently by Rep. Jay C. Kim (R-Diamond Bar). Sources said the Virginia office of a prominent accountant whom Kim recently hired also was searched this week for records that could shed light on whether Kim secretly used money from his corporation to pay some campaign expenses in violation of federal law.

In the November election, Phyllis Papen ran for the Diamond Bar City Council, supposedly to serve the Diamond Bar community for four years. Now she has announced that she is running for the 60th Assembly District. I feel the citizens of Diamond Bar deserve better than this. If Papen does not intend to serve out her four-year term as councilwoman for Diamond Bar, she should give up her seat on the Diamond Bar council and pass it on to the next highest vote-getter in the last election.

Former U.S. Rep. Jay Kim, who pleaded guilty in 1997 to accepting more than $250,000 in illegal campaign contributions and spent two months in home detention, has taken out papers to run again for Congress--this time in San Bernardino County. Kim, who in 1992 as a Republican from Diamond Bar became the first Korean American elected to Congress, paid the $1,367 filing fee this week and said he will decide by Friday's deadline whether to return the papers and seek election in the 42nd District.

Where is Jay Kim? The outgoing Republican congressman, who lost his reelection bid in June after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations, has closed his congressional offices in Southern California and Washington a month before his term ends, leaving constituents scrambling to get help. Phone calls to Kim's offices in Yorba Linda, Ontario and Washington went unanswered this week, with no answering machine or forwarding number to assist callers.

His electronic ankle bracelet off and the worst of his sentence behind him, Rep. Jay Kim (R-Diamond Bar) planned to return to his district today for the first time since a judge placed him under home detention two months ago. Denied by voters the GOP nomination in the 41st Congressional District this month, Kim flies home a lame duck as his historic political congressional career winds to an inauspicious close.

An advertisement in a local Korean language newspaper Friday called on readers to donate to Rep. Jay C. Kim's (R-Diamond Bar) reelection campaign because "the Republic of Korea and President Kim Dae Jung need congressman Kim Chang Joon," using Kim's Korean name. Kim is serving a home detention sentence in Washington for taking more than $250,000 in illegal campaign contributions, including some from foreign sources. Kim's congressional spokesman P.J. O'Neil, said the congressman would not discuss the ad in the Korea Central Daily News, because he had not seen it. A declaration at the bottom of the ad attributed it to "supporters of Kim in America," but did not specifically state whether Kim's campaign authorized or funded the notice.

It was not the room-temperature ham-and-cheese omelets that roused these political junkies to a City of Industry hotel banquet room at the otherwise ungodly hour of 7:30 one recent Friday morning. What brought them out was the season's first campaign forum in the 41st Congressional District and the candidates who would show up for it--or, more accurately, the candidate who wouldn't. "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Congressman Kim can't be here," an aide from Washington said cryptically.

Breaking from the long-standing tradition of supporting incumbents, congressional Republicans have voted formally to remain neutral in GOP Rep. Jay Kim's primary battle. Rep. John Linder (R-Ga.), chairman of the National Republican Campaign Committee, said the decision by the group's executive committee was "a very large departure" from the custom under which the party supports all GOP representatives for renomination.
