Hillary's Former Finance Director Indicted

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's former finance director has been indicted on charges of causing false campaign finance reports to be filed with the Federal Election Commission, the Justice Department said Friday.

The indictment of David Rosen, unsealed in Los Angeles, focuses on his fund-raising for an Aug. 12, 2000, gala for Clinton in Los Angeles. The New York Democrat was still first lady at the time.

While the event allegedly cost more than $1.2 million, the indictment said, Rosen reported contributions of about $400,000, knowing the figure to be false. The indictment charged that Rosen provided some documents to the an FEC compliance officer but withheld the true costs of the event and provided false documents to substantiate the lower figure.

In one instance, Rosen obtained and delivered a fraudulent invoice stating the cost of a concert associated with the gala was $200,000 when he know that figure was false, according to the indictment. The actual cost of the concert was more than $600,000.

Each of the four counts of making a false statement carries a maximum penalty of up to five years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines upon conviction.

Yep, anyone who gets in the way of the sociopath, pays the price of the sociopath. The sociopath will make some inquiries or there will be "hell to pay" and suddenly there wil be an "unfortunate accident". "Hi my name is John F. Kennedy Jr. and I`m thinking of running for Senator of New york" "Hi my name is Hitlery Rodham and I too am running for Senator of New York and I am so shocked that Mr. Kennedy crashed in his plane"

In the spirit of the NYT and LAT (These work great for us cajuns during crawfish season) I would like to call for junior senator from New York to resign from the Senate.

Now, now, I'm sure Hitlery is simply appalled there are nefarious financials on her behalf, and Rosen will die a natural death...an early, very early, natural death.

Hillary made certain that this indictment was announced late Friday afternoon---the doldrums of the news cycle.

It was a trick they learned from Harold Ickes and they employed it time and time again during the 8 year reign of corruption--always releasing bad news on Friday afternoons.

Hillary will do her usual yes, "he's a "Bad Boy" but I still love him and I swear I didn't know anything about it and I'm still shocked."

As a footnote, Hillary would add: "I also loved Vince Foster, Ron Brown, and the little lady with the spotted blue dress who took advantage of my "Bubba". I just love everybody. I can't help myself. I love people who kill babies and people who don't kill babies. I love gun molls and good citizens with self-protection weapons. I love the medicine men and the wonderful people who "successfully" operated on Bubba. Imagine the sympathy vote I could have gotten."

And not to break her spewing, the lady who always puts her foot in her mouth would continue: "Yes, I know there are a lot of "I's" in this but let's be honest, it's all about me."

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Wake me up when Hillary is INCARCERATED. The sound you hear now is the sound of pawns being sacrificed to protect the Queen. Nobody is going to spill the beans on Hillary unless they are willing to face a fate worse than death.

McDougal picked jail rather than testify. (I just can't imagine). It must have been "safer" in jail and the timing of when she got out probably has something to do with statutes of limitations.

But somewhere, in a dark corner, McDougal has hidden an insurance policy (manuscript). Yes, I believe that the truth will come out SOMEDAY!!

"charges of causing false campaign finance reports to be filed "

The above line is written in "passive" tense like "awww---geee he didn't meant it, it was only a mistake ...."

"active" tense would have been "he falsified financial reports..." compare those two phrases and you will see they do NOT mean the same thing.

But that would have been a "mean-spirited" tone ... boo-hoo-hoo!

Saying it is "our" Justice Dept is a misnomer. Who fired all 93 US Attorneys (in a single day) when they took power? The Clintons.

How many career Justice Dept employees are still there, holdovers from the Clinton Administration? Hundreds.

How many Justice Dept lawyers from the Civil Rights Division participated in this year's homosexual "OutFest!" in Philadelphia? Nearly 20%.

Do I believe in black helicopters? No. But I do believe Hillary! still has sycophants in Washington.

"...making a false statement..."

Hillary made false statements to the Grand Jury - or was that Bill? Regardless, the woman makes false statements all the time. If you are not Bill or Hill you will go to jail...for doing what they do with apparent impunity!
