Japan's finance minister admitted Monday that his department made 14 changes to documents related to a land sale that has sparked allegations of favoritism against Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The complex scandal appears to have dented Abe's popularity as he attempts to win re-election as head of his ruling party in September.Kagoike claimed he received a 1 million yen donation from Abe via his wife for the school, which the prime minister strenuously denies.Among the names removed were those of Abe, his wife Akie and Aso himself, according to documents published by opposition lawmakers.Abe has been largely free from the scandals that have afflicted previous Japanese prime ministers but his popularity already seems to have taken a hit.is this for Abe?Despite an apparent blip over the scandal, Abe enjoys approval ratings that would be the envy of British Prime Minister Theresa May or U.S. President Donald Trump.
