A6 THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER Thursday, January 27, 1994 Senate threatens to cut U.N. aid The vote focused on a group's ties to the North American Man Boy Love Association. By Jim A brants ASSOCIATED PkESS WASHINGTON The United States should sharply reduce funds to the United Nations unless the international organization severs ties with a group thai supports pedophilia, the Senate decided yesterday. The 99-0 vote followed a move last summer by a U.N. agency, supported by the United States, to give consultative status to an international gay and lesbian group that includes as one of its members the North American Man . Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). The administration, said Sen. Helms (R., N.C.), sponsor of the amendment was "fast asleep at the switch" when it joined other member states of the U.N. Economic and Social Council in giving nonofficial status to the International Lesbian and Gay Association, based in Brus-' sels, Belgium. He said: "It had to be crystal clear to anyone who conducted any research whatsoever into NAMBLA that this is an outfit catering to the twisted desires of pedophiles." He said ILGA was fully aware of the agenda of NAMBLA, a group formed in Boston in 1978 to promote consensual relations between men and boys. Helms' amendment to the State Department authorization bill states that the United States should with hold almost SI 19 million from international organizations in 1994 and 1995 unless the President certifies that the United Nations has no ties with organizations that promote pedophilia. The Senate also passed, 9J6, an amendment that would withhold 10 percent of VS. contributions to the United Nations in fiscal 1994 if the United Nations does not appoint an independent inspector general. For fiscal 1995, the reduction would go up to 20 percent of authorized funds. The amendment was introduced by Sen. Larry Pressler (R., S.D.), a critic of waste and mismanagement in U.N. agencies. A final vote on the bill, which authorizes more than S12 billion for the State Department and related agencies in 1994 and 1995, is expected in several days. The House passed its version of the bill last summer. LaRouche is released from prison The political extremist was paroled after 5 years of a 15-year fraud and conspiracy sentence. FROM INQUIRER WIRE SERVICES WASHINGTON Lyndon LaRouche, the political extremist and perennial presidential candidate, was released from prison yesterday after serving five years of a 15-year sentence for fraud and conspiracy. LaRouche, 71, was convicted in 1988 of mail fraud and conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service by deliberately defaulting on more than $30 million in loans from supporters of his presidential campaign. He was granted a parole by the U.S. Parole Commission in November. LaRouche will remain under the supervision of a federal probation officer for 10 years. LaRouche left the Federal Medical Center about 5 a.m., said Officer Jill Kruger, a prison spokeswoman. He was met by his attorney and was heading to Virginia, where his organization is based. Dana Scanlon, a spokeswoman at his headquarters in Leesburg, Va., said LaRouche planned to "take a couple of days to get himself settled, and then he'll probably have things to say to the press next week." In an interview on the eve of his release, LaRouche said he had filed papers from prison to run again in 1996. He has run for president in every election since 1976. LaRouche pushes apocalyptic views, warning of impending financial disasters and strongly attacking prominent people and institutions. &'" ' T1 Entire Stock of Sterling H ;, 'fl I & Marcasite Jewelry -O400o-50 'L- - , $ iff' fr- ( MM ' i t , "K-.sS" INCLUDING THESE SPECTACULAR SUPER BUYS!
