Barbour's Testimony

— NPR's Peter Overby reports that former Republican Party chairman Haley Barbour testified yesterday before the Senate Governmental Affair's Committee's inquiry into campaign finance improprieties. Senators questioned Barbour about the finances of the National Policy Forum, a non-profit organization that appeared to function as a wing of the Republican Party. The NPF received a loan from a foreign donor, and immediately paid off a debt to the RNC...suggesting that it may have acted as a conduit for foreign donations.
