The man in the middle: Peter Paul (more photos at Judicial Watch)
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Reviewhas new developments in the Peter Paul story:
The Justice Department says it has evidence that Hillary Clinton’s 2000 campaign for the U.S. Senate deliberately low-balled costs associated with a fund-raising event in an apparent attempt to free up more money for electioneering.
Peter Paul, a three-time felon currently under indictment for stock fraud charges in New York, claims he underwrote most of the cost of the August 2000 star-studded Hollywood gala. Prosecutors say he did so in hopes of securing a presidential pardon that never came. Mr. Paul and the Clintons have denied the allegation. Clinton’s campaign denies any fund-raising chicanery.
In a second matter, the Clintons have filed an appeal with the California Supreme Court in an attempt to stop a lawsuit filed by Paul. Acting on Paul’s behalf, Judicial Watch contends Mr. Clinton reneged on a $17 million deal to work for two Paul Internet companies.
The lawsuit says none of Paul’s expenses — $2 million he spent to put on the Hollywood gala that also was part of the business deal — were reported as required to the Federal Election Commission.
My take on Hillary’s Hollywood fund-raising shenanigans is here. Insight Magazine has been all over the story for months here. Too bad none of the talking head suck-ups asked Hillary about the matter as she made the rounds after the presidential debate last week on Spin Alley.blog comments powered by Disqus
