Thank you for your contribution. By the way, you're not a fugitive of the law, are you?
Senator Hillary Clinton's campaign has decided to return $850,000 of donations procured by Norman Hsu, "the disgraced Clinton campaign fund-raiser who recently fled arrest and is now under investigation for his fund-raising practices." Clinton's people advised that they would conduct background checks on "bundlers — the dozens of individuals who raise hundreds of thousands of dollars from donors on behalf of a candidate, as Mr. Hsu had done for Mrs. Clinton." Nice to see the senator's desire to show some ethics, but did she really need the media to bring this to her attention?
