Hillary to blame for taking Hsu's cash, insiders say
Union Leader ^ | 9/15/07 | Robert Novak

Posted on 09/15/2007 5:09:06 AM PDT by LdSentinal

Democratic insiders blame Sen. Hillary Clinton’s micromanaging for her presidential campaign’s acceptance of nearly $900,000 in contributions donated or raised by Norman Hsu, convicted for fraud and a former fugitive.

The Clinton campaign has insinuated that her financial aides dropped the ball in failing to vet Hsu before taking his money. But the senator is obsessive in running her own campaign, taking responsibility for details.

Hsu for many years has been well known in New York Democratic circles, appearing at events with $5,000 to $20,000 in contributions. Recipients were ignorant of his criminal background. Nevertheless, considering Clinton administration scandals about dirty money from Asian businessmen, Democrats are amazed that Sen. Clinton did not thoroughly investigate Hsu before accepting funds.

When you repeatedly violate the law and are never held accountable, why stop breaking the law?

Does anybody remember when the Japanese donor Oto (?) was “waived through” by the Secret Service when Bill Clinton told them to stand down at the Hollywood fundraiser by Peter Paul? This is the very same thing. The Clintons don’t want the FBI or the Secret Service investigating any of their wealthy, illegal, felon fundraisers.

There really isn’t a THOROUGH background check. When you attend an event with a party under Secret Service protection, you have to submit your Social Security #. That’s it. That is not a thorough background check.

You also have to submit your SS# for campaign donations. Do we know how many SS #’s and identities Hsu has?

Nonetheless, one would think that in this vetting process, his criminal background would show up somewhere along the line. And one has to assume that the Clintons knew and willingly suspended belief in order to accept large sums of cash OR that she is the stupidest woman on earth. Or both.

All of the Democrap “Recipients” knew darned well the money was illegal. NONE of them questioned it, they’re as guilty as Clinton, actuallly.

Novak is either shilling for the RATS or else a fool.

Probably both.

[you have to submit your Social Security #. ]

I suspect that considering her polarizing persona, she receives more scrutiny. Then again, maybe not...
