HILLARY CLINTON INVOLVED IN ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN FINANCING
HER PAC DIDN’T REPORT ANY FUNDS
A campaign finance scandal has ensnared a Hillary Clinton aide who court paper show secured illegal funding for a 2008 campaign operation, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Senior campaign advisor Minyon Moore was linked to a scheme to fund pro-Clinton operations in four states and Puerto Rico to the tune of $608,750 during Clinton’s tough campaign for the Democratic presidential primary, the daily reported, citing documents from US District Court in Washington.
The revelations, potentially damaging to the former secretary of state who is mulling a second White House bid, came to light in statements by Washington businessman Jeffrey Thompson, who pleaded guilty Monday on corruption charges in a case largely relating to his role in the capital city’s 2010 mayoral race.
