Video: Hillary Clinton Possibly Committing Campaign Finance Reform Felonies

June 22, 2007

I have previously posted here about Hillary Clinton being sued for campaign finance reform law violations. She was supposedly caught on video tape committing several felonious acts. The man  who is suing her, Peter Paul, claims he has the video tape that proves this.

On the tape the former first lady and leading Democratic presidential contender is heard speaking in 2000 with Hollywood mogul Peter Paul, comic book icon Stan Lee, and director Aaron Tonkin about a massive fundraising event for her 2000 Senate race. Paul spent about $2 million of his own money to produce the event but later had a fallout with the Clintons.

If she helped to plan the event, it could legally constitute a direct hard money donation to Clinton’s Senate campaign, rather than to her joint fundraising committee called New York Senate 2000. If that is the case, the donation from Paul would be 10 times the legal limit of $2,000. Knowingly soliciting a contribution of $25,000 or more is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

The conversation appears to show Clinton actively helping to plan the event. The suit alleges that she violated federal campaign finance laws by directly soliciting a contribution from Paul.

The video was available on the internet today and here it is.
