¿Hillary? gets money from criminals, media yawns

Remember all the criminals and terrorists that ¿Hillary?'s husband pardoned right before they left office? Remember how the big whoop-tee-doo in the left-wing media was that there wasn't going to be any reciprocal back-scratching? Nah, that would never happen!

Or would it? (via Jammie Wearing Fool):
Three recipients of controversial 11th-hour pardons issued by former President Bill Clinton in January 2001 have donated thousands of dollars to the presidential campaign of his wife, Democratic front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., according to campaign finance records examined by ABC News, in what some good government groups said created an appearance of impropriety.

"It's not illegal," Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, told ABC News. "But, of course, it's inappropriate and she should return the money. It does raise the appearance that this is payback.

"One can only hope that she wasn't yet aware of who made the donations," said Sloan.

Nope! No idea whatsoever! And that whole Norman Hsu fiasco? Why that was just an innocent oversight. He didn't think he was doing anything illegal! Er, something.

I wonder. If this was a Republican, do ya think the left-wing media (Pravda Washington Post, The NY Slimes, Communist Cable News Network) might have just a liiiiitle to say about it?
