    BACKGROUND: http://hillcap.org NEW YORK SUN ARTICLE, Feb. 2005 Pursuant to the above referenced article, Aaron Tonken was wearing a government wire for evidence gathering in the Hillary campaign finance fraud that began in 2000 and continues to this day. When discovery in Paul v Clinton finally begins later this year, much light is going to be shed on those who want certain information to remain hidden. When the Paul and Clinton saga began, Ed Rendell was then the chairman of the DNC. On Jan. 31, 2003, he was sworn in as Governor of Pennsylvania. Overlooked in any of the mainstream...

Rosen has been indicted for deliberately reporting that the cost of an August 2000 Hollywood fund-raising gala was only $400,000 when the actual tab was $1.2 million — a step that let Mrs. Clinton spend $800,000 more in "hard money" for her campaign.

Rosen, who was Clinton's finance director at the time, intentionally underreported the cost of the August 2000 gala by two-thirds, prosecutor Peter R. Zeidenberg told jurors in his opening statement. Rosen did so, the prosecutor said, because as the price of the gala began to spiral out of control, "he knew that there was going to be outrage in the campaign and at headquarters." Rosen, 40,...

But if the claims of former fundraisers are the standard by which political trouble is measured, Sen. Hillary Clinton's problems are much bigger than DeLay's.

Tonken's life these days is neither flashy nor frenetic. Since September, he's been in a federal prison north of Los Angeles serving a 63-month sentence for mail and wire fraud. The abrupt end to Tonken's career as an organizer of charity fund-raisers delivered a financial blow to the foundations he worked with and a public relations headache for the entertainers he accused of profiting from ostensibly charitable events.

    TAFT, Calif. - Five years ago, Aaron Tonken was riding high, hobnobbing with Hollywood celebrities and helping to raise millions for the Senate bid of first lady Hillary Clinton. Tonken's life these days is neither flashy nor frenetic. Since September, he's been in a federal prison north of Los Angeles serving a 63-month sentence for mail and wire fraud. The abrupt end to Tonken's career as an organizer of charity fund-raisers delivered a financial blow to the foundations he worked with and a public relations headache for the entertainers he accused of profiting from ostensibly charitable events. Now, however, there...

    Borrowing a page from President Bush, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton told a Boston audience this week that prayer has always played a meaningful role in her life - though accounts from her days as a student radical suggest that's probably not true. "I've always been a praying person," Clinton told a crowd of more than 500, including many religious leaders, at Boston's Fairmont Copley Plaza. According to the Boston Globe, the newly religious former first lady "invoked God more than half a dozen times" as she urged society to accommodate religious people who "live out their faith in the...

    On the eve of President Bush's second inauguration, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is blasting him as the "fear factor" president who tries to sell his irresponsible agenda by scaring the voters. "The fear factor has become the overriding strategic approach that this administration uses," Clinton complained to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. The likely 2008 presidential candidate told the paper that Bush has used scare tactics to rally public support on issues ranging from U.S. policy in Iraq to privatization of Social Security. On Iraq Clinton griped that Bush had even botched the election process, saying that regional balloting...

    Hillary Clinton on Environment Supports oil reserve release & fund conservation Q: Do you support conserving energy?A: I’ve spoken about an energy policy that would include conservation tax credits that the Republicans have blocked. The administration has put forth an energy policy that we couldn’t get through that Republican leadership that my opponent is part of. We need a new Congress. I was pleased when the president did release some oil from the reserve. So we have work to do and it needs to be led by Democrats who understand that we shouldn’t be beholden to big oil. Source:...

    NEW YORK, January 12, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Abortion crusader and New York Senator Hillary Clinton condemned US President George W. Bush Tuesday, claiming his withdrawal of funding from organizations that commit or promote abortions is harming women.

Population Conference in Cairo, as well as the 1995 U.N. women's conference in Beijing, where Clinton gave a keynote address. She argued that the Bush administration has failed to...

She says her task is made more difficult by "the Republican attack machine out to distract me...
