Only Clinton Could Solicit from China

Say it ain't so. Queen Hillary taking shady campaign contributions from shady Chinese businessmen using funny addresses?

Looks like it.

One of the biggest sources of political donations to Hillary Rodham Clinton is a tiny, lime-green bungalow that lies under the flight path from San Francisco International Airport.

Six members of the Paw family, each listing the house at 41 Shelbourne Ave. as their residence, have donated a combined $45,000 to the Democratic senator from New York since 2005, for her presidential campaign, her Senate re-election last year and her political action committee. In all, the six Paws have donated a total of $200,000 to Democratic candidates since 2005, election records show.

Ace has got this one, too.

Whereas Allah doesn't seem to think that any campaign finance laws have been broken, some folks at AOSHQ think so.

What strikes me as odd is that after the fiasco of the Buddhist Temple fundraisers, someone at the campaign should just know better. Shouldn't they?
