Skip to comments.( Democrat ) Tester awaits ruling on donation ( Hsu )
Posted on 09/09/2007 10:15:38 PM PDT by george76
Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., said Friday that he won't keep campaign donations he received last year that have now been tied to a disgraced Democratic fundraiser if the donations are found to be improper.
"If a donation to Senator Tester is shown to have been made illegally, he would obviously return it or donate it to charity," said Matt McKenna, a Tester spokesman.
Tester received $3,750 last year from people linked to Norman Hsu, a New York clothing executive who helped raise more than $1 million for Democratic candidates in the past four years. Tester received no money from Hsu himself.
Chris Wilcox, executive director of the Montana Republican Party, said Friday that Tester should return the money and not wait to see if the donations are illegal.
"Obviously, they need to give the money back," Wilcox said. "It's money that has a taint on it at this point. Jon Tester ran as a guy who was going to be completely aboveboard."

Tester might as well keep the money. Everybody knows the democrats are crooked, and people still vote for them.
“Tester received $3,750 last year from people linked to Norman Hsu”
Sen. Tester, who are the Hsu associates who gave you the tainted money?
Oddly, that's actually a pretty "boy-scout" rule for a democrat, but for the rest of us, the fact that he would be REQUIRED by law to rid himself of illegal donations kinds of makes his promise to do so a little underwhelming.
We need to repeat this kind of thing over and over again, even when it sounds stupid. That's how the democrats get the nation repeating their stupid talking points, repetition.
The newspaper omitted ‘democrat...’
The money is never returned if we don’t see both sides of a cancelled check.
Also, giving the money to an anti American non profit funded by George $oreA$$ is not returning the money. Those NGO’s will laundry that money, take their cut and send a check to the Rat politician who returned it.
If they really want to give the money to charity, they can give it to the Salvation Army. Then if we see both sides of the cancelled checks, we will know that they money went to a real charity.
Did Hillary’s brother ever actually refund his fee for Bubba’s pardons ?
Another Clinton corrupt deal that was exposed. He promised, but we never saw both sides of his check.
Donating their crooked money to a Soros fund is another ‘clever’ circular scam.
When the bea$t ran in the NY $inator race, she received a large donation from a Islamofascist group associated with terrorist.
She supposedly returned that morning. We never saw both sides of that check on her web site.
"LIFE AIN'T EASY FOR A BOY NAMED HSU!"
HSU $ORRY NOW? ANOTHER HILLARY $CANDAL!
Good pick-up. In the Gazette, he was eventually labelled with “D-MT” in one of these stories. Thanks for posting this article.

Exactly. A cynical mind might even wonder if the American Cancer Society's just-announced $15 million dollar ad campaign for universal health care might not have been crafted to accommodate just such shenanigans. They can count on the press to ignore the ideologic bent of their usual so-called charities, but in order to get by today's citizen journalists, they need something a bit more Mom and Apple Pie. The American Cancer Society does nicely.
This man beat Conrad Burns because of the smell of corruption, yet now we know that illegal money derived from fraud funded his campaign and helped him win.
Do we get a ‘do over’ for the election?!?
“Everybody knows the democrats are crooked” - No they don’t. Go ask the normal Democrat if they think this. I think the MSM keeps the crimes of the Democrats as well hidden as possible.
