Hsu: A Lesson Hillary Should Have Already Learned

The more we read about Norman Hsu and the million dollars of funny money he gave to Hillary, the more a key question keeps coming up.

Hillary says she’s learned her lesson and ordered her staff to redouble their vigilance in checking out the integrity of all her donors. OK. But exactly the same scandal happened in 1996. But instead of Norman Hsu, it was Johnnie Chung and Charlie Trie who were donating funny money to her campaign.

Why didn’t she learn her lesson then? Chung was actually getting his money from the Chinese government. Hillary knew darn well she had to check Hsu out, but she was so desperate for his money that she cut corners. It doesn’t show that she’s learned anything from the shenanigans of the 1990s.
