Palm Beach Post, Friday, December 10, 1976- -A3 Democrats Ask Panel For Probe G05Q3EQ&Q WASHINGTON (UPI) - House Democrats decided yesterday to ask their ethics committee to investigate reports of influence peddling by South Korean agents, but they turned down another proposal designed to prevent such future incidents. Democrats voted to accept a proposal by Reps. Toby Moffett of Connecticut and Berkley Bedell of Iowa "that the ethics committee of the 95th Congress undertake a full and complete review of the matter as soon as possible." Shortly before that, Democrats rejected, 37-21, a proposal by Rep. Tim Wirth of Colorado to put a $100 limit on the value of gifts congressmen can accept from one source each year. The flurry of action was aimed at a Justice Department investigation of published reports that some members accepted cash and other gifts from South Korean businessman Tongsun Park to generate support for his government. Rep. John McFall of California, defeated in his race for House Democratic leader, confirmed reports he accepted $4,000 from Park. Rep. John Brademas of Indiana, the new assistant leader, said said he received campaign contributions from Park in 1972 and 1974, when such contributions were not prohibited by law. Speaker-designate Thomas P. O'Neill, voicing support for the Moffett-Bedell ethics inquiry, said he planned "to go forth as quickly as we possibly can with this Korean matter" in the new Congress that convenes Jan. 4. Common Cause, the citizens advocacy group, said yesterday it had written to O'Neill asking him to create a select committee to investigate the entire South Korean matter. O'Neill had no immediate comment on the request. Wirth said his defeated proposal would have defined current language that bans gifts "of substantial value" as meaning anything more than $100 a year from any one source. Rep. Joe Waggonner Jr. of Louisiana described the Wirth plan as "silly," and Rep. Frank Annunzio of Illinois asked "what makes less than $100 moral and right and more than $100 wrong?" Earlier the caucus put off a decision on a proposal by Rep. Pat Schroeder of Colorado to ban taxpayer-funded travel abroad by lame duck members and another proposal by Rep. Bob Carr of Michigan to require committees to approve such foreign travel by recorded votes. The two proposals were referred to the Commission on Administrative Review, which is studying ways to approve public accounting of how legislative funds are spent. mm ntS3 cn3 uunD II 1 A ii ti i j umwp ml f II w rt II 11 I w 111 I II W WW II v mm 1 I fll I 0011 South Dixio liny., W.
