Clement Stone intends to trace some $7 million in campaign contributions and loans he made to see if any of his funds were used in the Watergate incident. In a copyrighted story by Jerome Watson and Joel Weisman, the Sun-Times said Stone disclosed Thursday that he has made political contributions of $5,680,503.45 and loans of $1,234,203.70 since 1968. . Most of the contributions, the newspaper said, were made before the federal campaign* contribution disclosure law took effect and were reported substantially below the levels revealed by Stone. For example, the Sun-Times reported that Stone contributed $2.8 million to the Nixon campaign in 1968 — a contribution which had been nairePlans ce Funds estimated as low as $500,000. "His precise disclosures may establish him as the single largest political contributor in history — as, well as the No, 1 financial angel of President Nixon," the Sun-Times said. In an interview with. Sun- Times reporters, Stone for the first time noted that he had "some doubts" about whether his 1972 contributions — including a $2,056,145.05 contribution to President Nixon — were used for legitimate political purposes. "You give under the assumption that people handling the funds are decent," the newspaper quoted Stone as saying. "But I guess after the checks are cashed it's hard to trace exactly how all the funds are spent. (But) I plan to try to see how our money was spent and where. "If money was put into a bank and drawn out for an illegal purpose that would be a very bad situation," Stone said. in Need life Insurance? A Disability Plan? An Investment Program?
