Bush Returns Donation

President George W. Bush said Friday he will return a campaign donation after the Free Press reported on an Iraqi-American donor from Michigan who had business dealings with former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's government.

The Bush campaign returned $2,000 to businessman Asaad Kalasho.  The RNC returned $25,000, while several republican reps returned smaller amounts.  Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., also accepted $2,000 from Asaad Kalasho, funds she has since donated to charity.
