Skip to comments.Guilty: Another Illegal Clinton Bundler-cum-Fugitive Faces Prison Time (Pakistani Immigrant)

Pakistani immigrant Abdul Jinnah may go away for as long as five years for filling Senator Clinton's campaign coffers in a very familiar way.
LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- A Northridge businessman has pleaded guilty to funneling tens of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions to Senators Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer.
Abdul Rehman Jinnah admitted reimbursing employees and others for contributions made in their names. There is a $2,000 cap on individual contributions to candidates.
Jinnah faces up to five years in federal prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines when he's sentenced on June 2nd.
The m.o. of Clinton campaign fraudsters is fastidiously observed.
Indicted in May of 2006 for his crimes, Jinnah promptly cheesed it back to Pakistan. After being hunted by the FBI for about year, he returned to California for a dramatic and medically complicated surrender.
[Jinnah] surrendered to the FBI on a year-old indictment Tuesday [May 29, 2007], then collapsed in Los Angeles federal court.
Looking tired and disoriented, Abdul Rehman Jinnah, 56, complained of chest pains and began shaking an hour into a contentious bond hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Patrick J. Walsh. The judge interrupted the hearing for nearly 30 minutes while paramedics attended to Jinnah.
Sounds like Jinnah and Norman Hsu are working off the same playbook.
Thanks to JustADude for the heads up.
I’m sure this will be headlined on tonight’s national news.
That’s about 300 dots... Pretty soon a trend may develop.
PING to you! It’s another bad day for Hillary, which means another rough night for Huma.
Oh man that is funny!
He sat at the head table at the Hollywood Gala.
DANG! Do you have a photo of that? If so, post it here, and let’s tie Hillary to this in a RICO way.
Gee, why is this news? Clintons and fund raising problems are not really news. A Clinton in trouble for fund raising problems is about as serious as any of us getting a parking ticket. Unless the news media start to hold the Clintons feet to the fire about this kind of thing. Al Gore said there was no controlling legal authority for his part of a Clinton fundraising scandal.
One of these days, the Clintons won’t have the FBI files of the “controlling legal authority” and THEN they may have to face the music for at least a few of their endless crimes. Even Edwin Edwards eventually went to jail.
no hummus for you!
Peter says he has a photo and will get it to me.
Don’t count on this being “headlined on tonight’s national news.” I know, tongue-in-cheek, but since when does any Pakistani give money to a Jewish Senator (Barbara Boxer) D-Ca) in the first place, unless they expect them to keep on supporting the jihadists and anti-American policies (re withdrawing from Iraq).
Boxer - the SOB deserves a jail cell with a Black Muslim prisoner. “Religion of peace” . In her case, it would a “religion of a piece of her ass”.
She is one dumb Democrat. Makes Obama almost look like a god. Oh, that is what he says. Sorry.
On behalf of loyal and sane and rational Jewish Americans, I apologize for this mental midget.
Wait a minute, it's a crime related to the CLINTONS, not Republicans, what was I thinking?
well, that’s how you deal with a corrupt organization ala RICO: you cut off its funds.
If anyone does find the picture, I’ll happily add it to the original post. Shoot me a note at flippidot at gmail if it turns up.
