"The candidate's unparalleled fundraising success relies largely on the least-affluent residents of New York's Chinatown -- some of whom can't be tracked down." (An unlikely treasure-trove of donors for Clinton)
I love this line from the article:
"Many, on the other hand, said they gave for reasons having more to do with the Chinese community than with Clinton. He Duan Zheng, who gave $1,000, said of the Fujianese community: "They informed us to go, so I went."Everybody was making a donation, so I did too," he said. "Otherwise I would lose face."
That's great! It's also obscene!
John Edwards is blasting Clinton! (Hillary's Chinatown fund-raiser draws Edwards' criticism) I'm surprised that more Dems don't stand up and call on the Clintons to play clean.
I like this from Blogger Flip:
"The unlikely vein of campaign gold Hillary seems to have tapped in Chinatown certainly appears to be of the familiar Clinton scandal genus, but the species isn't quite identifiable yet - are these straw donors being quietly reimbursed behind closed doors, are they hard-working immigrants being pressured by local heavies to dig deep for their Senator, or are might they simply be figmental?" (Mama's Gotta a Brand New Hsu)
To be fair, candidates can not review every donation. Honest mistakes will happen.
However, we are talking about he Clintons. They want to win. As I said before, they will do, or say anything to win!
The Clintons are corrupt in every way. (See The allure of stinking campaign cash)
I agree with Captain Ed:
"Who wants Hillary elected so badly that they keep using Asian-Americans as straw donors to flood her coffers with their cash? Who has this much cash to dump into the presidential election? Perhaps the FBI will start looking for those answers -- and soon." (The Chinatown Dodge)
Let me repeat. The Clintons are corrupt. By next summer, most Democrats will reluctantly agree with me and have a serious case of buyer's remorse!
P.S. On a related point, Zogby has an interesting poll:
"The online survey of 9,718 likely voters nationwide showed that 50% said Clinton would never get their presidential vote."
