The Dems are focused on Craig when they ignore their own problems and corruption. Why isn't this a top story?

-Wall Street Journal

A poor family is making big donations to Hillary Clinton... and their donations just happen to track with the donations of a wealthy Chinese businessman.

One of the biggest sources of political donations to Hillary Rodham Clinton is a tiny, lime-green bungalow that lies under the flight path from San Francisco International Airport.

Six members of the Paw family, each listing the house at 41 Shelbourne Ave. as their residence, have donated a combined $45,000 to the Democratic senator from New York since 2005, for her presidential campaign, her Senate re-election last year and her political action committee. In all, the six Paws have donated a total of $200,000 to Democratic candidates since 2005, election records show.

That total ranks the house with residences in Greenwich, Conn., and Manhattan's Upper East Side among the top addresses to donate to the Democratic presidential front-runner over the past two years, according to an analysis by The Wall Street Journal of donations listed with the Federal Election Commission.

It isn't obvious how the Paw family is able to afford such political largess. Records show they own a gift shop and live in a 1,280-square-foot house that they recently refinanced for $270,000. William Paw, the 64-year-old head of the household, is a mail carrier with the U.S. Postal Service who earns about $49,000 a year, according to a union representative. Alice Paw, also 64, is a homemaker. The couple's grown children have jobs ranging from account manager at a software company to "attendance liaison" at a local public high school. One is listed on campaign records as an executive at a mutual fund.

The Paws' political donations closely track donations made by Norman Hsu, a wealthy New York businessman in the apparel industry who once listed the Paw home as his address, according to public records. Mr. Hsu is one of the top fund-raisers for Mrs. Clinton's presidential campaign. He has hosted or co-hosted some of her most prominent money-raising events.

People who answered the phone and the door at the Paws' residence declined requests for comment last week. In an email last night, one of the Paws' sons, Winkle, said he had sometimes been asked by Mr. Hsu to make contributions, and sometimes he himself had asked family members to donate. But he added: "I have been fortunate in my investments and all of my contributions have been my money."

He's got $45,000 laying around and decides to continue living at home with mom and dad instead of getting his own apartment?

I guess he's really committed to the cause.

Update:

Yodastatoo, way to answer the question! You're a true-blue-Lib. Thanks

Update 2:

Azawalli, agian, way to answer the question. Love that childish, Liberal name calling you all resort to when hit with the truth.

Update 3:

I can see, once again that getting a straight answer out of the Libs is impossible. Always the arrow and never the Indian. I'm not taking up for Craig. If he's guilty of this then he's wrong, but you Libs stare corruption in the face via your own party and you blame others and continue to take up for them. Brings me back to Barney Frank and Jim McGreevy.

    Democratic corruption in the news? Never, nada, nope. Just pull out a republican story from a couple of months ago, give it a hint of a sexual twist and all bad things ever done by Dems are ignored.

    The media lies, skews and intentionally misleads. He plead to disorderly conduct. Ask a dem if disorderly conduct is a sex crime and you can hear a pin drop. The truth and facts scare them silly.

    i never heard Hillary say she was against receiving campaign donations.

    added. explain the corruption. it don't sound kosher and warrants further investigation,but there is no arrest or conviction. i'm tired of the Craig posts and the nonsensical posts in general. the Craig ones are based on his hypocrisy. do you have a problem with questions bashing dems?

    In the spirit of cons who keep bringing up Bill Clinton whenever they're criticized, I'm going to respond by saying: Republicans are all diaper-wearing prostitute-hiring closet cases!
