Chinese Dishwasher Donates $2,000 to Clinton Campaign

How does a Chinese dishwasher living in a run-down tenement in the impoverished Chinatown section of high-cost New York City come up with a $2,000 campaign donation to Hillary Clinton?  According to the Clinton campaign, he did and so did hundreds of other dishwashers, trinket sellers, and hawkers of rubber sandals and bargain-basement clothes.

The Los Angeles Times reports that hundreds of dishwashers, waiters, and others whose jobs and dilapidated home addresses seem to make them unpromising targets for political fundraisers are pouring $1,000 and $2,000 contributions into Hillary Clinton’s campaign treasury. The Times reports that in April a single fundraiser in an area long known for its gritty urban poverty yielded a whopping $380,000. John Kerry in 2004 received only $24,000 from the same area.

Worse yet, when the Times checked the donors, more than a third couldn’t be found and most were not even registered to vote. Some didn’t even have green cards.

At this point in the presidential campaign cycle, Clinton has raised more money than any candidate in history. It should also be mentioned, that candidate Clinton has also had to return more campaign “donations” than any candidate in history. Last month, Clinton had to return $850,000 in campaign contributions collected by Chinese con man and Clinton collaborator, Norman Hsu.

Investors Business Daily said voters had better pay attention to this because for the first time in our history, we could be electing a Manchurian candidate – someone who’s loyal to foreign and unseen donors rather than American voters.

“What do these hidden interests want in exchange for marshaling the dishwashers of Chinatown to contribute to Clinton’s campaign coffers? What has she promised them in exchange?”

“Knowing that the Chinese seek greater access to U.S. technology, how will this serve their national interests over our own? Will voters find themselves in the situation of watching a President Hillary Clinton sit on her hands after an American aircraft is shot down because of what someone in Beijing knows about cash she accepted?”
