TALK ABOUT POLITICALLY TONE DEAF!
The purported "smartest woman in the world" is proving once again that she is anything but.
In the first place, her campaign announced that they were returning $850,000 in donations that came courtesy of criminal Norman Hsu. This is problematic since apparently the funds were the fruits of another of Mr. Hsu's "ponzi schemes" and therefore owed to his defrauded investors.
Today, the Clinton campaign announced that IF the individual so-called contributors were willing to SWEAR that it really was their money, the Clinton campaign would accept a new check from these people (from the funds that presumably were being returned).
Any way you look at it, the managers of Mrs. Clinton's presidential campaign are displaying gross dishonesty, stupidity and a complete lack of awareness of how their actions illuminate the corrupt practices of Mrs. Clinton's fund raising efforts. And ultimately, even if she knew nothing about any of this (which I very much doubt), the responsibility is hers.
Smartest woman in the world? I don't think so!
