Now, Hillary Wouldn't Be Part of Something Crooked... ........ Would She?

Looks like the Los Angeles Times (No bastion of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy) is beginning to connect some, none too convenient, dots!

image WASHINGTON -- For the last 15 years, California authorities have been trying to figure out what happened to a businessman named Norman Hsu, who pleaded no contest to grand theft, agreed to serve up to three years in prison and then seemed to vanish.
"He is a fugitive," Ronald Smetana, who handled the case for the state attorney general, said in an interview. "Do you know where he is?"

Hsu, it seems, has been hiding in plain sight, at least for the last three years.

Since 2004, one Norman Hsu has been carving out a prominent place of honor among Democratic fundraisers. He has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions into party coffers, much of it earmarked for presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.

Actually he has another talent in obfuscation... called "Bundling"

Records show that Hsu has emerged as one of the Democrats' most successful "bundlers," rounding up groups of contributors and packaging their checks together before delivering the funds to campaign officials. Individuals can give a total of $4,600 to a single candidate during an election cycle, $2,300 for the primaries and $2,300 for the general election.

One example of the kind of first-time donors Hsu has worked with is the Paw family of Daly City, Calif., which is headed by William Paw, a mail carrier, and his wife, Alice, who is listed as a homemaker.

image The Paws -- seven adults, most of whom live together in a small house near San Francisco International Airport -- apparently had never donated to national candidates until 2004. Over a three-year period, they gave $213,000, including $55,000 to Clinton and $14,000 to candidates for state-level offices in New York.

So in other words, the fine folks living in this house, who works for the POST OFFICE as a LETTER CARRIER for GOD SAKE!!!!  willingly chose to give $213,000 to Candidates... instead of say... buying a few gallons of another paint color!... and specifically decided to fund the campaigns of New York.  Um... did you catch that the Paw's live in the San Francisco Bay area?  Sure makes sense to me...

Check the park in DC. That seems to be a dumping ground for Hilary.
