November 1, 2008

As AoSHQ points out, “Sort of sums up his entire candidacy, doesn’t it?”

Zeituni Onyango, Barak Obama’s aunt, is in the United States illegally, is illegally living in public housing in Boston, and illegally donated to Barak Obama’s campaign.

Welcome to Obamamerica.

Even the NY Times is starting to notice

October 10, 2008

what has been obvious for a while. The NY Times finally runs a story on the shady, and possibly illegal campaign donations that have been floating the Obama campaign.

Another criminal HRC donor

January 18, 2008

Not on the level of Norman Hsu, but with ties to the Mexican Drug cartels.
Not surprising, HRC wasn’t the only democrat this guy gave drug money to.

HT to Ms. Malkin.

GUILTY! GUILITY! GUILTY!

January 4, 2008

HRC’s Chinese Connection, convicted felon and democrat fundraiser, Norman Hsu has been convicted once again. This time it’s three years in a California state pen. He still faces federal fraud charges in New York.

GUILTY! GUILTY! GUILTY!

December 4, 2007

Ok, not yet, I’m just getting ahead of myself. Hillary’s corrupt fundraiser, Norman Hsu has been indicted by a federal grand jury on cheating investors and using that money to make illegal campaign contributions (all to democrats)
The AP reported the story:

A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted Norman Hsu, a top Democratic fundraiser accused of cheating investors of at least $20 million and using some of the money to make illegal donations to political campaigns.

In the 15-count indictment returned in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the government accused the 56-year-old clothing-industry entrepreneur of duping investors nationwide with a massive Ponzi scheme.

HT to Ace and Ms. Malkin.

When will CNN/MSNBC/CBS run this story

September 30, 2007

DirectorBlue at Doug Ross’ journal has details on the Smoking Gun Video that shows Hillary Rodham Clinton in direct violation of federal election laws.

Put simply, if Hillary participated in the planning or coordination of the Paul fundraiser, it “…would make Paul’s contributions a direct donation to her Senate campaign rather than her joint fundraising committee, violating federal statutes that limit ‘hard money’ contributions to a candidate to $2,000 per person. Knowingly accepting or soliciting $25,000 or more in a calendar year is a felony carrying a prison sentence of up to five years…

Hsu update

September 27, 2007

Hillary’s felon fundraiser is back in the news:

A judge has frozen bank accounts and sealed the Manhattan apartment of Norman Hsu at the request of investors who say the jailed political fundraiser stole $40 million from them.

The Hong Kong-born Hsu, 56, is in jail in California, where he has been wanted since he pleaded no contest to grand theft charges then skipped town before he could be sentenced in 1992. Investigators say they believe Hsu fled to Hong Kong.

After being a fugitive for about 15 years, Hsu made a name for himself as a political fundraiser for Democrats. He was arrested about three weeks ago and now faces new federal charges in New York of bilking investors out of $60 million. Investigators say he donated some of that money to numerous Democratic candidates and causes.

As man who wrote the screenplay said, “Follow the money.” I wouldn’t be surprised if some of Hsu’s cash tracked back to the Communist Chinese government. They are traditional Clinton donors.

Time for A Special Prosecutor

That is what the democrat illegal fund raising scandal (with Hillary Rodham Clinton up to her neck in it) that Norman Hsu is probably just the tip of the iceberg of, needs.

HRC dredging up nightmares of Clinton Past…

September 12, 2007

First there is the whole illegal fund raising thing.

“HsuGate is a flashback to the scandals of Clinton’s husband — John Huang and the Buddhist temple; Johnny Chung transferring cash for a Red Chinese military officer, including $50,000 delivered directly to the then-first lady’s chief of staff; Charlie Trie, who was cozy with a front firm for the Chinese military.”

Then there was the really bad foreign policy thing:

The more experienced Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, has relied largely on her husband and a triumvirate of senior officials from his presidency—former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, former U.N. ambassador Richard Holbrooke and former national-security adviser Sandy Berger (who tries to keep a low profile after pleading guilty in 2005 to misdemeanor charges of taking classified material without authorization).

Rob at Say Anything has a thing or two to say about that Charlie Fox:

Berger’s crime isn’t given justice here. It wasn’t just taking classified information without clearance, it was taking and destroying classified national security documents related to the Clinton administration’s anti-terror efforts immediately before Bill Clinton’s testimony before the 9/11 commission. A factoid that has, strangely, been completely ignored by the 9/11 conspiracy mongers on the left and among Ron Paul’s supporters in favor of theories about the Bush administration.

Anyway, I wonder if Hillary’s campaign isn’t the first campaign ever to feature the services of a national security adviser who, by order of a criminal court ruling, has no access to national security documents.

More on HRC’s felon fundraiser

September 9, 2007

By way of Ace comes a NY Times story about Norman Hsu’s shell corporations:

The records show that Components Ltd., a company controlled by Mr. Hsu that has no obvious business purpose and appears to exist only on paper, has paid a total of more than $100,000 to at least nine people who made campaign contributions to Mrs. Clinton and others through Mr. Hsu. The payments occurred in the spring of 2003, several months before Mr. Hsu emerged as a contributor to Democrats and more than a year before he started bundling checks from those same people for various campaigns. In all, he has raised more than $1 million for Democrats.

The records show that during that one-month period, Components Ltd. took in close to $600,000, about a third of it wired to the company’s account by two people in California and New York who also were part of Mr. Hsu’s circle of campaign contributors. At the same time, the company issued checks and wire transfers totaling $660,000, much of it to the same group of people, including two checks for more than $100,000 apiece that bounced because of insufficient funds.

Ace nails it:

It’s not a mystery. He’s laundering illegal contributions, either from those not entitled to donate to political campaigns (foreign nationals) or from very rich donors who have easily exceeded the federal limits. He takes the illegal money in, writes checks to his network of straw (fake) donors, then they give “their” money to Hillary! and Co.

On CNN’s telling lack of the coverage, The Clinton News Network ran a single story on Hsu’s capture, long after the fact, and got quickly off the front page.
