|About the Series
The story you're about to read is true, but unlike the words used in the opening of the old Dragnet television series, the names have not been changed to protect anyone...not one letter.
The Fraudulent Senator is a seven-part series that examines the 2000 senatorial campaign of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Specifically, the series investigates the political and criminal aspects surrounding a star-studded fundraising event and concert coordinated, underwritten and produced by West Coast businessman Peter Paul, an event the Federal Election Commission has come to call "Event 39" in its documents of record.
Event 39, conceived by Peter Paul as a gateway to a corporate promotional project utilizing the star-power of a former President of the United States, was designed to honor then out-going President Bill Clinton while helping to financially support the senatorial campaign of then First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. In return Paul would be guaranteed the president's commitment to participate in a business venture with Paul after he left office.
What developed was the single biggest incident of campaign finance fraud in US history and a coordinated cover-up that stretched from the halls of justice to Capitol Hill to the mainstream media.
Using official documents from the Federal Elections Commission and documents deemed factual by the California Supreme Court, Joan Swirsky, Justin Darr, A.J. DiCintio, Noel Sheppard and Frank Salvato, five prominent new media writers regularly published in The New Media Journal and other noted new media publications, set out to examine Event 39, the people and institutions involved and the legal and political actualities, implications and ramifications.
Using the documents to divine the facts, each writer conducted an independent investigation into the matter. What they came up with - independent of each other's investigations - is, in total, a cohesive, fact-based portrait of a true "culture of corruption" that has influenced our government for over 15 years.
