Jimenez is the former chief executive of Future Tech International,
Inc., a distributor of computer components and peripherals located in
Miami Florida. Last year Jimenez was charged with conspiring with his
company and others to impede the Federal Election Commission in its role
as regulator of federal election laws.
The Federal grand jury indictment charged that donors who made
contributions to Clinton and the other candidates were then reimbursed
by Jimenez. According to the indictment, the straw donors were
employees of Future Tech and of Mark Vision Computer, a Miami-based
company owned by a close relative of Jimenez.

The employees were paid for their contributions through the Future
Tech and Mark Vision payrolls and later reimbursed by Jimenez. The
grand jury charged that the straw contributions to the Clinton campaign
totaled $23,000 and were made in connection with a Sept. 19, 1995,
fund-raiser at the Sheraton Bal Harbor in Miami.
