Robert Torricelli,

U.S. senator from New Jersey, abandoned his reelection campaign in September, fearing a recent fund-raising scandal would cost him the race and Democrats control of the Senate. He was “severely admonished” by the Senate Ethics Committee in July for lapses in judgement in accepting lavish gifts from David Chang, a campaign contributor, who himself pleaded guilty in 2000 to making illegal donations to Torricelli's campaign fund.
