"The Tokyo Campaign Finance Inquisition"

The WSJ has this report

"Japan's campaign finance laws have claimed yet another talented politician. Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara resigned on Sunday after admitting that he had received a small donation from a constituent who was not a Japanese citizen. Mr. Maehara's career may not be over, but this minor scandal comes when Prime Minister Naoto Kan is teetering, and the foreign minister was a strong candidate to succeed him. The crusade for moral purity in politics is crippling Japan's leadership."
