Liberals (and even some conservatives) sometimes like to call the Republicans “the Stupid Party.” While it doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, calling the Democrats “the Criminal Party” makes just as much sense. Maybe more.
It’s been a widespread joke for decades, for example, that, “dead people vote in Chicago” and other municipalities where corruption is a fact of life, and, just as miraculously, they always vote for the Democrats! Would the party would hold any power at all in America if it weren’t for such “crimes and misdemeanors”?
Now one of the nation’s top Democrats — a man closely tied to the Clintons — is being scrutinized by law enforcement.
According to NBCNews.com:
The FBI is investigating whether Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s 2013 campaign accepted illegal contributions, law enforcement officials confirmed to NBC News. (…)
McAuliffe is a one-time board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, the foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton and likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The former chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2000 to 2005, McAuliffe was also a co-chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Records show more than 100 donors contributed to both the foundation and McAuliffe’s campaign.
Federal officials say investigators are looking at those overlaps and are especially interested in contributions from Wang Wenliang, a Chinese politician.
The trouble is, there are so many allegations of corruption attached to the Clintons that voter might ignore this new report. There are simply too many such stories to keep track of.
Others might well ask themselves: If this sort of thing went on during Hillary’s failed 2008 run for the nomination, what sort of shenanigans are happening in her camp right now?
And will the FBI only investigate and let citizens know about it after it is too late, and she’s sitting in the Oval Office?
