James Nedelkow defected from his native country 30 years ago to escape its rigid Communist regime. During his recent return to Bulgaria as an investor, the Southern California businessman challenged another powerful force--a criminal syndicate muscling into new industries. U.S. Embassy officials said they were worried that Nedelkow's public opposition to organized crime's control of a Bulgarian pager system could get him killed.

Politics, Hillary-Style: "Hillary Rodham Clinton returned a $1,000 contribution for her Senate race because the check was linked to organized crime in Bulgaria. Mrs. Clinton didn't want to lose the votes of New York mobsters by taking money from foreign criminals who can't vote for her anyway." (Gary Greenfield) They Got Game: "They're planning a new Bill Gates version of 'Monopoly.' If you pick the 'Go to Jail' card, you cannot pass 'Go' or collect $200 million."

Hillary Rodham Clinton has returned a $1,000 check from a foreign-born donor because the money is linked to a business with possible ties to organized crime in Bulgaria. "Questions were raised about the source of the contribution and the check was returned," Howard Wolfson, a spokesman for the first lady's Senate campaign, said Saturday. The questionable donation came from Darina Pavlova, a naturalized U.S. citizen who is married to Ilia Pavlov, a U.S. resident alien.
