From the New York Sun regarding Teddy Kennedy's brother-in-law, Raymond Reggie, being sentenced for stealing and also becoming an informant for the FBI:
The New York Sun reported yesterday that an unnamed witness with ties to a prominent political figure has been involved in recent federal investigations of campaign fund-raising violations, including a probe into alleged financial misreporting in Mrs. Clinton's bid for the Senate in 2000. The informant, described in court papers only as a "confidential witness," was part of an FBI plan to secretly audiotape conversations with political operatives, including a well-known person who prosecutors said was seeking to funnel donations from foreigners to federal campaigns.
Now, who do we know that has tried to use foreign donations for their campaigns in the past?
Reggie was a regular presence at Mr. Clinton's side when he visited New Orleans during his presidency and thereafter. Just last September, Mr. Clinton had lunch in that city with Reggie, as the former president swung through town to sign his autobiography and attend a $10,000-a-head Democratic Party fund-raiser, the Times-Picayune newspaper reported. A former congresswoman and ambassador to the Vatican, Lindy Boggs, joined Reggie and Mr. Clinton at the lunch, as did two federal judges whom Mr. Clinton appointed.
When Mrs. Clinton traveled to New Orleans in May 2000 to raise $100,000 for her Senate campaign, Reggie was on the host committee.
An attorney for the Clintons, David Kendall, had no immediate response yesterday to questions about Reggie's role in Mrs. Clinton's Senate campaign or about the possibility that Reggie might have taped one or both of the Clintons.
Even if it turns out that Hillary really didn't know anything (funny how the Clintons never know anything, huh?) about his actions on her behalf, doesn't it seem odd that these criminals and low-lifes keep turning up around the Clintons?
The Left likes to call President Bush corrupt, but I have yet to see a couple-of-dozen felons pop up with close ties to him.
Yet "the most ethical administration in history" was overflowing with criminals throwing money at the Clintons to advance their pet causes. But when you call them corrupt, liberals put their hands over their ears and begin screaming, "La-la-la-la-la!!!" at the top of their lungs.
But they're not hypocrites! Just ask them.
