Clinton charity wound up

A charitable fund set up three years ago to help defray legal fees incurred by President Bill Clinton and his wife is being wound up for lack of support, leaving the Clintons with more than $3m (pounds 1.8m) to pay. The fund raised $1.3m, but contributions fell off sharply this year. According to the fund's director, Michael Cardozo, donors appeared to be scared of associating themselves with Democratic Party fund-raising scandals. The legal fund disbursed more than $1m in fees, mostly in connection with the Whitewater land deal in Arkansas. - Mary Dejevsky, Washington
