Edwards Attacks Clinton on Questionable Contributions
ABC News ^ | October 19, 2007 | Raelyn Johnson

After an article in Friday's "Los Angeles Times" revealed that Clinton received large donations from poor residents living in New York City's Chinatown, the Edwards campaign pounced on the opportunity to bring more attention to the questionable contributions.

"This morning we all read in L.A. Times that many Clinton campaign contributions are raising eyebrows again. Many of their donors are not even registered to vote, and at least one denied even making any contribution at all," Edwards Campaign Manager David Bonior said in a statement on Friday.

"Senator Clinton has said public financing is the answer. Senator Edwards has opted to take public financing, but Senator Clinton has not. Senator Clinton should explain why she doesn't mean what she says...The bottom line is we need a nominee who can do two things: campaign in all 50 states and challenge our broken system in Washington. With every day the growing question has to be can Hillary Clinton do either?"

Last Sunday while campaigning in New Hampshire, Edwards sought to bring Clinton down a notch by pointing to a story "The New York Times" that explained the New York Senator's vote to declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.

"There was a story in today's New York Times about this issue and about her vote on this issue. And some of her advisers said that she voted yes because she was moving from primary mode to general election mode. I may be wrong, and you'll have to tell me, have we already decided who's going to win the New Hampshire primary," said Edwards during a town hall meeting in Dover last week.

Seeking further distinction he added, "instead of primary mode versus general election mode, instead of saying one thing in the primary and something different for the general election, how about if we do tell the truth mode all the time. How about if we say exactly what we believe and stand by that position."

I personally was stunned that none of Clinton's Democrat opponents attacked here after the Norman Hsu scandal.

One can only assume this is an act of desperation on the part of Edwards. But it is still pretty weak. No mention of Norman Hsu, no mention of Clinton reneging on her promise to give the money back, not attempt to tie this to Bill Clinton's fundraising scandals.

Obama and Edwards both act like they’ve just now figured out that they’re in a party primary, not in a general election with an opponent named Bush.

That’s one.

Now where are the rest of them?

Or are they too corrupt to speak out.

Looks like Edwards could use some large bore ammo. Did you by any chance send him your Hillary stuff?

Right. No real “attack”. It is just what DBM cells it when anyone raises a question against Ms. Precious or her ways.

Ha. The Breck Girl proves himself to be a useful idiot, at last. Good for him on this issue, even if not by intent. Sic 'er, Johnny.

I take it that this was his wife attacking Clinton? I heard Johnny had a mascara-based emergency at the time.

About time somebody spoke up. I’m surprised it’s Edwards....maybe she doesn’t have his FBI file!
