Hillary In Campaign Finance Scandal?

It appears as if the Wall Street Journal has dug up a blockbuster.

I’ll let them do the talking…

DALY CITY, Calif. — One of the biggest sources of political donations to Hillary Rodham Clinton is a tiny, lime-green bungalow that lies under the flight path from San Francisco International Airport.

Six members of the Paw family, each listing the house at 41 Shelbourne Ave. as their residence, have donated a combined $45,000 to the Democratic senator from New York since 2005, for her presidential campaign, her Senate re-election last year and her political action committee. In all, the six Paws have donated a total of $200,000 to Democratic candidates since 2005, election records show.

That total ranks the house with residences in Greenwich, Conn., and Manhattan’s Upper East Side among the top addresses to donate to the Democratic presidential front-runner over the past two years, according to an analysis by The Wall Street Journal of donations listed with the Federal Election Commission.

It isn’t obvious how the Paw family is able to afford such political largess. Records show they own a gift shop and live in a 1,280-square-foot house that they recently refinanced for $270,000. William Paw, the 64-year-old head of the household, is a mail carrier with the U.S. Postal Service who earns about $49,000 a year, according to a union representative. Alice Paw, also 64, is a homemaker. The couple’s grown children have jobs ranging from account manager at a software company to “attendance liaison” at a local public high school. One is listed on campaign records as an executive at a mutual fund.

The Paws’ political donations closely track donations made by Norman Hsu, a wealthy New York businessman in the apparel industry who once listed the Paw home as his address, according to public records. Mr. Hsu is one of the top fund-raisers for Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign. He has hosted or co-hosted some of her most prominent money-raising events.

The Clinton camp probably has denability on this one, but Hsu doesn’t. I think he’s been caught red-handed on this one, so expect to hear more about this in the following months.

More as it develops…

    When the Clintons aren’t sucking scum from the top of the pond [or getting sucked under the Oval Office desk], they are bottom-feeding the likes of the Hsus. I’m waiting for the MSM deluge of “racism” and “Murdoch hit-job’ to surface as it always does from the Soros-cide end of the blog spectrum. On the other hand, this might be delayed pay-back for Billy-Jeff’s sales of classified weaponry to the PRC back in the ’90x?

    I recall that a Buddhist “temple” in California gave tons of cash to Bill’s last presidential campaign — which turned out to be a front for the Chinese government. The Chinese own the Clintons. They always have and they always will. Bill remained silent when Hong Kong was “repatriated” against its will. Hillary will do nothing when the Chinese take Taiwan. Chinese know all about corruption — hence they are well acquainted with the Clintons.

    In case you didnt realize that the definition of constituent is no longer someone who votes for an elected official. The definition of constituent is now lobbyist who gives to an election campaign, re-election campaign or a “charitable” contribution to the elected officials spouses “special interest group”, that said spouse over sees.
