This is big because it basically intimates that the money those San Fran residents living in that shabby house gave Hill could very well be dirty.

From the AP:WASHINGTON (AP) – Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign said Monday it will return $850,000 in donations raised by Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu, who is under federal investigation for allegedly violating election laws.

Clinton, D-N.Y., previously had planned only to give to charity $23,000 she received from Hsu for her presidential and senatorial campaigns and to her political action committee, HillPac.

The FBI is investigating whether Hsu paid so-called straw donors to send campaign contributions to Clinton and other candidates, a law enforcement official said Monday.

Regardless of whether it turns out that the Paws’ money was really Hsu’s, giving it back quickly will make this a non issue.

Also, a step above and beyond…

[…] the Clinton campaign also will vigorously review its fundraisers, including thorough criminal background checks, in the future. “In any instances where a source of a bundler’s income is in question, the campaign will take affirmative steps to verify its origin,” he said.

Good thinking.
