Posted on 10/20/2007 3:11:29 PM PDT by magellan
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."
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.
Now where are the rest of them?
Or are they too corrupt to speak out.
Slime, smegma, goo, worm trail. The democrat party is nasty and worthless.
OMG Silky Pony gets a populist spine!
JOhnny did not send his wife out to ask the tuff questions
the pretty pony better watch himself, one doesn’t want to tick off she who’s name must not be spoken
Looks like Edwards could use some large bore ammo. Did you by any chance send him your Hillary stuff?
He feels pretty.
Their meek reaction to Clinton makes them look weak.
Pretty pathetic when Pony Boy shows more spine then the entire RNC!
Did the Beast give him permission to break the Democrat’s 2nd Amendment?
What??? The name Clinton and campaign finance questions???
Add the names like Tree, Chung, Hsia, Kanchanalak, Hsu. No way there is anything wong going on. Now consider the source of this link.
I meant Commandment but almost think the slip might work.
The Breck Girl? Attacks!!??
Doesn’t go together!
Edwards attacks Hillary with a blow dryer.
girly men i tell you!
Right. No real “attack”. It is just what DBM cells it when anyone raises a question against Ms. Precious or her ways.
When David Bonior is T-H-E upstanding member, your party is in a pot of poo.
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!
Johnny boy may want to avoid the Ft Marcy Park area.
