Hillary Raking In More Chinese Funny Money

I have to give the L.A. Times credit, they've been digging into more of Hillary's mysterious Chinese benefactors, and they ran the story on Page 1 today.

It seems that many poor Chinese in New York are giving Hillary large donations. Somehow busboys are contributing $1000 and $2000 to Hillary's campaign.

"The Times examined the cases of more than 150 donors who provided checks to Clinton after fundraising events geared to the Chinese community. One-third of those donors could not be found using property, telephone or business records. Most have not registered to vote, according to public records. And several dozen were described in financial reports as holding jobs -- including dishwasher, server or chef -- that would normally make it difficult to donate amounts ranging from $500 to the legal maximum of $2,300 per election."

More: "Most of the Chinese reported as contributing to Clinton's campaign have never voted. Many speak little or no English. Some seem to lead such ephemeral lives that neighbors say they've never heard of them."

Also: "At least one reported donor denies making a contribution. Another admitted to lacking the legal-resident status required for giving campaign money."

I believe that China is very invested in having the Clintons back in the White House. The Norman Hsu matter was just one part of an ongoing story in which the Clintons' finances have been tangled with Communist China for years.

WLS has further commentary on this at Patterico's site.

Meanwhile, Hot Air has an interesting story connecting the dots between Norman Hsu and a Hillary Clinton earmark of nearly a million dollars in taxpayer funds for the New School -- where Hsu was a trustee.
