Talking about Mr. Kan Naoto’s case, he maintained that he did not know that a particular donor was a foreigner. As another Japanese parasite, Mr. Kan, was assisted by his fellow members of the Diet, he managed to escape from further accusations!
Despite these two cases, one of which terminated the former Foreign Minister’s political career, Mr. Noda has very carelessly committed the same illegal actions.
I presume that even a five-year old boy can understand the illegality of receiving funds from foreigners, as there were at least two recent cases that have become big scandals. Yet, it seems that Mr. Noda has not learned any lessons from the cases and has repeated the same mistake now!
Over the weekend, it was reported that Mr. Noda had received 300 thousand yen donations from four foreigners, and a firm headed by a foreigner, between 2005 and 2010.
However, he refused to comment on this matter and kept silent. If he thinks that he has not done anything wrong, he should come forward and tell us bravely that his acts were completely acceptable. But, that could not happen, as it was wrong to receive donations from foreigners.
Yet, the news is not a big surprise for me. Even before the disclosure of this donation, most of the public had already suspected that Mr. Noda may have done such illegal political acts behind the scenes. Among those of us who were opposed to the idea of his being prime minister, he was notorious for being stingy as well as insidious.
I can show you a few cases that prove his miserliness and meanness.
First, on January of this year, an improper payment was made by one of his offices. An organization that supports Mr. Noda’s political activities paid 220 thousand yen to the bars that he visited from donated money that was supposed to support his political activities.
(220,000 yen of donated money was used by Mr. Noda’s office for the payment of drinking and eating at bars)
This June, it was reported that Mr. Noda received a 500,000 yen donation in total from a man who was the president of a company that had evaded paying its taxes.
(Mr. Noda accepted a 500,000 yen donationfrom a tax-evading company.)
Furthermore, his office received a 3 million yen political donation from a man who established a clinic that killed a female patient who had had liposuction surgery performed.

(3 million yen donations were made to Mr. Noda by Shinagawa Plastic Surgery Clinic, which killed a 70-year-old patient during her liposuction surgery)
In response to the latest allegations, his office (not himself, slickly) has not yet commented.
