Fred's Barely In And He's Already After Hillary: I knew I Liked This Man

Rival charges Hillary Clinton turned blind eye to Hsu's past

WASHINGTON: Hillary Clinton's links to illegal fundraising by Asian-Americans in 1996 should have made her wary of accepting $850,000 from a fugitive Asian-American this year, a rival presidential campaign said Tuesday.

The criticism came from an adviser to former Republican Sen. Fred Thompson, who chaired a Senate investigation into illegal contributions by Asian-Americans to Bill Clinton's re-election campaign and the couple's legal defense fund in the 1996 election cycle.

Thompson adviser Rich Galen said Clinton's 2008 campaign has become "the sequel" to her husband's scandal-plagued 1996 campaign.

Late Monday, Clinton announced she was returning $850,000 raised by fugitive Norman Hsu, who jumped bail in 1992 after being convicted of defrauding investors of $1 million. Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said the campaign was "unaware" of a warrant for Hsu's arrest.

"You have to look at this with a great deal of skepticism that - having been through this sort of thing in '96 - that nobody thought to say, 'Hey, you know, we better take another look at this before we take all this money,' " he said.

"And the fact that nobody did - or if they did, they decided to just put their finger in front of their lips and say shhh and try to sneak off into the distance - tells you a great deal about the fact that the Hillary Clinton campaign is the Bill Clinton campaign redux."

Wolfson said, "We reject the suggestion that suspicion should be based on ethnicity in America.

"Mr. Hsu donated to numerous charities and more than two dozen candidates and committees," he told The Examiner. "Despite conducting a thorough review of public records, our campaign, like these others, was unaware of Mr. Hsu's decade-plus-old warrant."

In 2005, prior to raising funds for Clinton, Hsu co-hosted a fundraiser for Barack Obama, who later became a Democratic presidential candidate. Obama's campaign is now investigating the validity of $19,000 in contributions it accepted from people associated with Hsu.

"Are you suggesting we should have racially profiled Hsu because he's Asian?" Obama spokesman Bill Burton asked.

Clinton is returning donations to 260 people who were recruited by Hsu. The FBI is investigating whether these were merely "straw" donors who were funneling money from Hsu to Clinton to skirt campaign finance laws.

In March 1996, Bill and Hillary Clinton's legal defense fund accepted money from straw donors recruited by Yah Lin "Charlie" Trie. The Taiwan-born Democrat hand-delivered hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of checks and money orders in two manila envelopes to the defense fund.

No, But maybe you should vet your donors better? But then again look at us: we are no better we didnt vet our donors to well either that's why some of them are in jail! But this dude "HSU" and are way over the top. Move especially, questioning the integrity of our Commander General Patraeus. I sure hope the candidates take a real close look at thier donors this election season. And I hope the crowd denounce that ad! Go Get 'Em Fred!

Fred knows who he will be up against after the primaries and no better time to beging going after his 08 opponent than now.

Plus the Hildabeast deserves it. Thankfully Fred also has the guts to tell the truth about her rather than just sit back and accept all the crap she does like everyone else does!

Great pics BTW!

Hillary will always think she is above the law. The attitude reeked of smugness from 93 to 01 in White House and follows her on the trail.
As for Obama and the racial profiling remark, please tell me a man for affirmative action could question that form of fundraising watchdog

Fred is the man!! That is the way to win elections. Stand up and tell America what our "precious" Hillary is made of. Sooner or later (hopefully sooner)they will find out the truth.
