Democrats linked to fraudulent businessman
Question of the Day
In tomorrow's edition of The Washington Times, Bill Gertz will report:
Questionable donations to Democratic officials and presidential candidates from a Chinese-American businessman highlight past concerns over Chinese political influence-buying operations.
Apparel executive Norman Hsu, who turned himself in last week to authorities in California to face fraud charges, donated more than $1 million to senior Democrats, including the presidential campaigns of Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barak Obama.
Mr. Hsu, a native of Hong Kong, has not been linked to any foreign government, and the fraud charges are unrelated to campaign contributions. It is not known if federal investigators are looking into his donations, most of which were made since 2003.
Mrs. Clinton, who gave $23,000 of Mr. Hsu's money to charity, said last week that the case does not appear similar to the 1996 scandal involving a covert effort by China's government to funnel money to President Bill Clinton's re-election campaign.
China, however, is linked to past covert funding of Democratic and Republican campaigns.
