CLINTON ACCUSED OF FUNNELING FUNDS

Democratic front-runner Bill Clinton came under attack by his two remaining rivals during a Chicago debate, with Jerry Brown charging that Clinton used his position as Arkansas governor to "funnel money" into his wife's business.

The former California governor cited a Washington Post article as evidence. The Post article said the Clintons had been faced with "questions about potential favoritism" because Hillary Clinton is a partner in a prestigious Little Rock, Ark., law firm whose clients frequently lobby state appointees.

The sparring occurred Sunday during the second of two debates in Chicago, as the candidates scrambled for support in time for crucial primaries today in Illinois and Michigan. Regardless of the attacks, Clinton is expected to win both. In addition, the results of a Time magazine/CNN poll, released Sunday, show that Clinton has pulled even with Bush among voters.
