The US Congressional Taiwan Caucus regularly gets trips to Taiwan courtesy of local organizations. This blog reports on Ohio Congressman and Senate candidate Sherrod Brown and Taiwan:

We raised Sherrod Browns connections to Taiwan about a week ago, and in our investigations we discovered this story, from the Hill.

“Two business groups with close ties to the Taiwanese government have sponsored more than $230,000 in congressional travel between 2000 and 2004 without registering as foreign agents as required by law, according to trip disclosure records.”
