Posted on 05/10/2008 4:26:00 AM PDT by RDTF
Federal prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation into a Washington-area donor to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, investigating whether he illegally reimbursed other contributors.
The case is similar to one brought last year against Norman Hsu, a New York businessman who was indicted in November on charges of paying associates for donations to the New York senator. The Clinton campaign ultimately returned more than $800,000 raised by Mr. Hsu, who was also accused of cheating investors out of millions of dollars.
The new investigation centers around contributions last year by William Danielczyk, chairman of Galen Capital Corp., a northern Virginia private-equity firm, and by the executive's family, employees and investors, according to lawyers and others close to the case.
Investigators are seeking to determine whether the contributions Mr. Danielczyk solicited for Sen. Clinton were then repaid by his company. -snip-
There's no evidence that the Clinton campaign knew that Mr. Danielczyk may have violated the law. With no public announcement, the campaign returned $115,000 that Mr. Danielczyk raised last year, Federal Election Commission records show.
Mr. Danielczyk was one of Sen. Clinton's network of wealthy "bundlers," major donors who persuade friends and colleagues to contribute together to a candidate. Bundlers have been a vital source of funds for Sen. Clinton's campaign, far more than for her Democratic rival, Barack Obama.
Most of the contributions raised by Mr. Danielczyk were received by the campaign at an intimate March 2007 fund-raiser at Sen. Clinton's Washington home. The Wall Street Journal reported last Sept. 20 that many of the people listed as having contributed that day were registered Republicans with professional ties to Mr. Danielczyk. One of them, Pamela Layton, said in that article that her donation of $4,600 "was all corporate money."

They see blood and attack. Nice friends you got there Clinton.
“Investigators are seeking”
What are the chances these investigators are Obama supporters?
Meanwhile, back at the internet ranch, Obama's campaign is taking in millions in "small" donations through its website; contributions smaller than $200 that do not have to be itemized or disclosed under FEC campaign finance rules. No temptation to cheat there, no sir.
“No temptation to cheat there, no sir.”
Theres got to be some Hillary-friendly investigators out there somewhere who can look into it.

‘Theres got to be some Hillary-friendly investigators out there somewhere who can look into it.’
Hussein Obama’s fund raising via the internet reminds me of the success the Deaniacs had 4 years ago. Later we found out that some of George $oreA$$’s non profits in Canada and here were bringing in those so called pledges for Dean.
Probably 80 to 90% of Obama’s supporters are on welfare, we are told that they are donating via the internet. That does not compute.
How much of that money is being donated by Opecker Princes and thugs and then laundered as small donations?
Wow, only took them sixteen years.
