It is revealed current and former power firm executives are major donors of LDP.
As LDP lawmaker Taro Kono illustrates, donations by power utilities or their executives are not itself problematic.

And looking at the news above, we also need to draw attention to cozy ties between DPJ and "DENRYOKU SOREN."
