A Senate committee investigating the campaign finance scandals of last year’s election campaign heard from form its first witness yesterday.

Former Democratic Party finance director Richard Sullivan flatly denied that coffees at the White House and stays in the Lincoln bedroom were fund-raising events.

• Richard Sullivan, the former Democratic Party finance director.
• Senator Pete Domenici, a New Mexico Republican.
