Washington Times:

A prominent New York financial manager plans to plead guilty to making false statements to federal election regulators involving tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, in a two-page charging document Friday, said Evan H. Snapper caused the Clinton campaign "unwittingly to file materially false reports" with the Federal Election Commission.

These reports showed that 21 unnamed persons had given $2,300 each to Mrs. Clinton's presidential campaign when, in fact, Mr. Snapper "well knew" that the money actually had come from somebody federal authorities identified only as "Person A," according to the filings.

My recollection is that similar allegations were made against the Obama campaign, but I have seen no cases at this time. Both campaigns were desperate for funding and the Clinton campaign was the most stretched. I think it is still paying off some of the debt incurred in the campaign.
