VALLEY ROUNDUP

From Times Wire Reports

The independent counsel investigating Labor Secretary Alexis M. Herman has charged a Singapore businessman with making $200,000 in illegal contributions to the Democratic Party through two U.S. businesswomen with ties to the Labor secretary. Herman is not mentioned in the Feb. 16 indictment against Abdul Rahman, but the two U.S. businesswomen, sisters Vanessa and Caryliss Weaver, are named 11 times as the contributors of record for donations that the indictment says actually came from Rahman. Laurent Yene, a former partner of Vanessa Weaver, alleged that Rahman made the donations to help obtain a Federal Communications Commission license for a company he had ties to.
