Oh, sweet snorty-snort:

A defiant Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has no intention of curtailing her fundraising in the Chinese community despite reports that she accepted cash from dozens of questionable donors in Chinatown earlier this year.

The Los Angeles Times has reported that Clinton had received about 150 donations of between $500 and $2,000 each from dishwashers, street vendors and other low-wage workers. Of the contributions examined, one-third of the donors could not be found and a $1,000 donor denied giving a contribution, according to the report.

“I represent New York and New York is a symbol of the success of immigrants coming to America,” the senator told reporters Saturday after addressing supporters at the Oak Park Elementary School in Des Moines.

“I am pleased to have a lot of first-generation American support as well as people who have been longtime involved in the political process … I’m going to keep reaching out to everybody in our country. I want to be a president to everybody.”

Earlier this year, Clinton returned about $7,000 of about $380,000 raised during a fundraiser that targeted donors from China’s east coast after campaign officials raised red flags about the donors. It’s not clear whether other refunds will be issued.

The recent Chinatown story came to light a month after Clinton was forced to return more than $850,000 raised by accused scam artist Norman Hsu.

The campaign has refused to return several hundred thousand Hsu raised for Clinton’s Senate re-election bid or for her pet political action committee Hill Pac.

Some of Clinton’s “Hillraisers” – about 200 high-powered fundraisers who have pledged to bundle $100,000 or more for her – have questioned the campaign’s vetting and screening procedures, which have been a continuing source of embarrassment, a person close to the campaign said yesterday.

All that’s missing is the trademark Clinton finger wag of defiance.

Polite understatement from the WaPo editorial board: “This appears to be another instance in which a Clinton campaign’s zeal for campaign cash overwhelms its judgment.”

No kidding.
