Days after the Clinton-Gore administration gave its endorsement last year to a controversial shopping complex to be built in a sensitive wetlands area in New Jersey, the development company’s executives and their relatives donated at least $31,000 to Al Gore’s presidential campaign. Enviros have long opposed the mall because it would require filling more than 90 acres of marshland habitat for rare birds and other wildlife. A Gore spokesperson denies any connection between the endorsement and the campaign donations. Meanwhile, Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader yesterday criticized Gore for being weak on auto fuel efficiency standards and George W. Bush for his poor record on pollution.
