Hypocrite

January 25, 2008
Only one week after candidate Hillary Clinton attacked Barack Obama in a nationally televised democratic presidential debate, accusing Obama of a relationship with indicted Chicago landlord Tony Rezko, it was revealed that the Clinton's themselves were supported by Mr. Rezko.

In the attack on Obama, Clinton chastised the Illinois senator for engaging in a land deal with Rezko. Obama has since severed his relationship with the businessman who awaits trial on federal corruption charges and who financially supported Obama's political campaigns. The attack was particularly surprising due to Hillary Clinton's revealed relationship with indicted Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu. The 53 year old Rezko is to be tried for federal corruption charges. He was indicted on fraud, attempted extortion and money laundering counts for allegedly plotting to get campaign money and payoffs from firms seeking to do business before two state boards. Once the first trial is completed, he then awaits another federal charge of swindling the General Electric Capital Corporation out of $10 million in connection with the sale of pizza restaurants. Clinton was confronted with the above picture of Rezko with her and former President Bill Clinton in an interview on NBC News, Friday, January 25, 2008. Senator Clinton said she didn’t know the man, and then took another jab at Obama by stating, “I probably have taken hundreds of thousands of pictures. … I wouldn’t know him if he walked in the door. I don’t have a 17-year-relationship with him,” alluding to Obama’s relationship with Rezko.

Hillary Clinton Tied To Fugitive

August 29, 2007
The Wall Street Journal has revealed that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has received about $850,000 in bundled contributions from long time fugitive Norman Hsu (Norman Yung Yuen Hsu).

Norman Hsu has been a major fundraiser for the Democratic Party and is a convicted promoter of pyramid schemes. After discovering a number of presumably illegally bundled campaign contributions in 2007, Hsu was discovered to have been a long time fugitive on the run since a 1992 fraud conviction. Hsu turned himself in to the state of California in 2007, however, then fled the state and was later recaptured. Hsu was again indicted by a federal grand jury for violating federal campaign finance laws and defrauding investors "out of at least $20 million" on November 27, 2007.

While Hsu provided financial backing to numerous democrats, Hillary Clinton was by far the largest recipient. Earlier in 2006, former President Bill Clinton referred to the fugitive as "our friend Norman". According to the Boston Globe, Hsu offered much more than just the $850,000 into Hillary Clinton's campaign bank account, he also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local, state, and federal candidates who have endorsed Clinton or whose support she courted. In multiple cases, Hillary Clinton or her aides directly funneled contributions from Hsu and his network to other politicians supportive of her presidential campaign, according to interviews and campaign finance records. Steering wealthy contributors among politicians for political support is not illegal but clearly imposes questions of motives. In the fall of 2007, in the height of the Nevada governor's race, Clinton agreed to help raise money for Democrat Dina Titus, a prominent party leader in a state that held a key early presidential caucus. Clinton arranged for Hsu to give Titus $5,000 on November 3rd. Later in February, former Iowa governor Tom Vilsack ended his own White House bid about $450,000 in the red. A month after dropping out, Vilsack endorsed Clinton, and Clinton agreed to help him retire his debts. Several of Clinton's biggest fund-raisers gave Vilsack checks, including Hsu, who kicked in the maximum allowable contribution.

Bill Clinton Criminal Legacy

While Hillary Clinton should not automatically be branded with the unethical actions of her husband, she created a nexus, invited scrutiny and became adjoined to her husband's actions when she told the nation that she would be sharing the presidency with him.
