Did Hillary Commit Hsu-icide?
Via Gateway Pundit we find that generous Democratic contributor and 'hillraiser' Norman Hsu may have been a close associate of China missile trader Bernard Schwartz. Oh, this is getting bad for Her Annointed Highness. This is dredging up all the unpleasant things people wanted to forget about Hillary, and puts the Clinton sleaze factor back into play. Norman Hsu may not have committed (another) crime with his byzantine donation practices, but it does go to prove that the Clintons have never fixed their faulty scumbag detectors. The receiving line of sleazoids greeting the Clintons seems to have no end.
For what it's worth, this is what WorldNetDaily has to say about this:
Last November, Schwartz and Hsu chaired a New School banquet at the Mandarin Oriental in New York which featured Sen. Clinton as keynote speaker. Clinton steered a $1 million federal grant to the college.WND reporting often seems hysterical (not in a funny ha ha way) but they do offer this screen shot:
Is there more than just this? Stay tuned as this story goes drip, drip, drip along.
Update: Drip, drip indeed. There are now two more very questionable donors to the Hillary campaign being investigated: Sant S. Chantwal and Tendo Oto. Commenter Frieda reminds us about fugitive contributor Abdul Rehman Jinnah. Why, it is turning into a veritable United Nations of corruption over at Camp Hillary.
Question: When is the mainstream media going to step up and fulfill its duty to defend Hillary against these scurrilous rightwing charges? Just when are we going to see the interlocking charts of donors contributing to those making these accusations? When are the criminal backgrounds of these alleged donors going to be debunked and placed in their proper context? We aren't going to let Hillary get swiftboated on this, are we?
Just where the hell are Rahm Emmanuel and James Carville??!??!1??
Answer: Are you kidding? As Jay Tea points out, these scandals have not even penetrated the thick forehead cocoon armor plating of the left wing yet.

You forgot to mention the indicted Pakestani donor, Mr. Rehman Jinnah.

It will be ignored as long as possible. There will not be any stroking of beards on the Sunday shows or serious editorials asking "Is this a problem for Hillary?" (Oh, I'm sorry. "Is this a problem of perception for Senator Clinton?"). Not unless it gets bigger and then won't go away. Then the swiftboating references will come out.

Wasn't ignoring it as long as possible exactly what made the Swiftboat thing a problem for Kerry?
The narrative here is being written, without Democratic editing.
They can only afford to sit this one out for so long.

Even better the Hsu-nami!

You have hit upon a good point here. Why has Obama not been going after HRM about this. I have been out of the news cycle for the last two weeks and I have not heard anything about him going after her about this.
Could it be that the Hsu strings reach out and touch a lot of other democrats.
Sorry, I like corny stuff.

One more thing. Every time, Hillary visits Los Angels, there is a certain Iranian group that does fundraising for her. This group advocates talks with Iranian regime, I won't be surprised if shaky Iranian fundraise is also in her list. I can't not proof anything now, but I do remember a "questionable" Iranian fundraise being part of Kerry campaign. check this: http://188.8.131.52/focus/f-news/1066568/posts
BTW/ thanks for the link to be blog. :-)
