Records show Tester received six donations last summer and fall from people identified in the Wall Street Journal as Hsu associates. Tester received a total of $3,750 in Hsu-related donations, records show, including $2,000 from two members of the Paw family on Sept. 18, 2006.
It may turn out that the link is just purely coincidental. It seems that the Democrats who received money directly from or just linked to Hsu are keeping the money.
Tester, however, is not alone among candidates who received money merely “linked” to Hsu and who are now either keeping the money or waiting to see if the donations are illegal.I wonder what Democrats and the MSM would be saying right now if Hsu was a Republican fund raiser. I think we all know the answer.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign has chosen to keep money Hsu merely helped raise. Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill received more than $18,000 in donations associated with Hsu, including some from the Paw family. She has chosen to keep the money unless it has been determined to be illegal.
It might help Tester to remember this...
Problematic campaign contributions played a role in Tester’s 2006 election. Tester unseated Republican Sen. Conrad Burns amid a scandal involving Burns’ receipt of more than $150,000 in donations from disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, his clients and associates. Months after the criticism, Burns either returned or donated the money.
