I wonder if the mainstream media will spend as much time on the Hillary Clinton fundraiser, Norman Hsu, as they did on Larry Craig?
Hsu is one in a long line of Asian money-raisers for the Clintons over the years. Remember names like Charlie Tree and John Huong who made illegal donations to Bill Clinton’s campaign. Now Senator Clinton says she’s giving back more than $800,000 of Hsu’s corrupt money by donating it to charity. I want to see the checks. Will the media ask, or forget about it?
A Washington Post story on Hsu says a simple internet search would have revealed his criminal background and his dubious financial practices. But when it comes to money and the Clintons, they vacuum it up like a Hoover. For them, money covers a multitude of sins.
This is about integrity and no one has ever accused the Clintons of having integrity. Hillary says she has no recollection of ever being with Hsu. I would sooner believe the moon is made of green cheese than I would that laugher. Keep an eye on Hilary and the money. This won’t be the end of it.
