The businessman, influential in Pakistani circles, also aided Boxer.

WASHINGTON — A Pakistani immigrant who hosted fundraisers in Southern California for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is being sought by the FBI on charges that he funneled illegal contributions to Clinton's political action committee and Sen. Barbara Boxer's 2004 reelection campaign.

Authorities say Northridge businessman Abdul Rehman Jinnah, 56, fled the country after an indictment accused him of engineering more than $50,000 in illegal donations to the Democratic committees. A business associate charged as a co-conspirator has entered a guilty plea and is scheduled to be sentenced in Los Angeles next week.

more than $50,000 in illegal donations to the Democratic committees

How much more than $50,000?
This smells. Could it be a whole lot more than the public will be allowed to see is here?
More than likely!

I doubt, we the people, can be certain he didn't contribute and hasn't been contributing with the investigative process and 'the republic's right to know' in place......

God bless you for your service to our nation, Piquaboy!

The fact that the LA Times reports this represents progress of a sort.

Are you certain Sir? I would have to surmise that perhaps the everyday editor took a day off?

Move along folks....nothing to see here..

Pakistani behaving badly...working against the real interests of America.
DNC taking ILLEGAL contribution from America's enemies.....
Islamists showing favor to their allies, the DNC..

How far away is the outrage that will lead to a "serious" response from AMERICANS?

Semper Fi

Thanks for that link. I don't think the AP has reported on this yet and it's doubtful they will.

I'd love to know if this guy was going to deliver something for Hillary -- like the Muslim vote.

I don't doubt it for a nanosecond. There's always a quid pro quo where the clintons are concerned.
