Hillary Clinton's $84 million campaign finance boodoggle

Red States:
The attempt to turn the Stormy Daniels unpleasantness into a campaign finance violation — a weak attempt as it tuns out — is starting to come into focus as a new Federal Elections Commission (FEC) complaint filed by The Committee to Defend the President alleges the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) was “us[ing] state chapters as straw men to circumvent campaign donation limits and launder(ing) the money back to her campaign.”

Dan Backer, the campaign finance attorney who filed the complaint, writes in Investors Business Daily that the scheme puts the conviction of filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, who was prosecuted “for giving a handful of associates money they then contributed to a candidate of his preference” to shame.

HVF solicited six-figure donations from major donors, including Calvin Klein and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, and routed them through state parties en route to the Clinton campaign. Roughly $84 million may have been laundered in what might be the single largest campaign finance scandal in U.S. history.
There is more.

It seems to be only a crime if the perp is a Republican.
