    The indictment of a top Northern Virginia fundraiser last week marks the latest in a series of criminal cases that have ensnared campaign donors to Hillary Rodham Clinton, who relied heavily on wealthy bundlers in her failed 2008 bid for the presidency. Federal grand jury indictments handed up in Alexandria allege that Galen Capital Group Chairman William P. Danielczyk Jr. and his treasurer illegally reimbursed nearly $190,000 in donations to Clinton's 2008 and 2006 campaigns, sometimes with corporate funds. The State Department referred questions to officials with Clinton's defunct presidential campaign, who did not respond to requests for comment Friday.
