Hillary Donor Scandal Deepens
The story of Hillary Clinton's fugitive Chinese donor continues to grow and grow, as reported on this blog. This is very damaging to her campaign because it reminds voters of the many unseemly fund raising tactics of the first Clinton administration (Lincoln bedroom, Buddhist Monastery, etc.), and it comes at a time when Congress and Washington is reeling from a series of salacious scandals. As it stands now, no one seems to know where this Hsu guy came from and how he made his fortune. All we know is that he is a Chinese national and was a fugitive on the run from the California justice system for nearly a year, and now we learn that he has ties to a Chinese arms dealer. Stay tuned---Republicans have been beaten over the head now by Democrats for months because of their scandals. Team Hillary stands to be on the receiving end of some heavy political payback.
