Chung Makes Deal With Prosecutors, March 6, 1998
The Curious Cast of Asian Donors, Jan. 27, 1997
Yogesh K. Gandhi heads a California foundation named after Indian leader Mohandas Gandhi, whom he claims as a great-granduncle. Gandhi turned up at a DNC fund-raiser with a life-size bust of Mohandas Gandhi and $325,000, which was later returned.

Gandhi later testified in court that he had no U.S. assets and was living off his brother's credit card. The majority report of the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee states that John Huang arranged Gandhi's meeting with Clinton, and that the money had been wired from one of Gandhi's business associates in Japan.

FBI agents arrested Gandhi in March on unrelated fraud charges, saying he was planning to leave the country.
