Skip to comments.Clinton, Boxer donor to plead guilty

Southern California businessman Abdul Rehman Jinnah has agreed to plead guilty to funneling tens of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions to Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barbara Boxer, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Jinnah is expected to formally enter his plea next week in Los Angeles federal district court. He could face more than a year in prison.
Under a plea agreement filed with the court, Jinnah admits he reimbursed employees and associates for $53,000 in donations made in their names to Clinton's political action committee and Boxer's 2004 reelection campaign.
His case, much like that of jailed Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu, exemplifies the pitfalls of political fundraising, in which candidates hungry for cash ignore warning signs about those able to raise it.

After being told of the criminal charges against Jinnah, Clinton and Boxer gave charities or the U.S. Treasury the contributions listed in the indictment as well as donations made by Jinnah and his family.
Jinnah returned to the U.S. in May and has been under house arrest. An attorney for Jinnah declined to comment and said the matter would be dealt with in court.
And Doug’s going to be in court today for the Peter Paul case. The Clintons aren’t doing too well, are they?
“After being told of the criminal charges against Jinnah, Clinton and Boxer gave charities or the U.S. Treasury the contributions listed in the indictment as well as donations made by Jinnah and his family.”
gave the money to charities... or the U.S. Treasury.
Seems funny they can’t actually be specific.
Of all the illegal money supposedly "returned" by the Democrats, I have yet to see a receipt.
Pakistani money to Padilla, Boxer, Clinton.... will the media and the courts ever hold the Dim Wits accountable?
Wel well well. Give the LA Times credit, they’ve been at the forefront of breaking the news on these illegal contributions/contributors. Good for them and good for us.

“...in which candidates hungry for cash ignore warning signs about those able to raise it.”
Or, in the case of these two, just brazenly disregard the warning signs while stuffing their support hose with the cash.
