Clinton, McCain Got Illegal Cash From Indicted JordanianSubmitted by northstar on Thu, 02/26/2009 - 16:19
A Jordanian businessman with ties to a major Republican fundraiser has been indicted for making tens of thousand of dollars in illegal contributions to Florida’s governor and three presidential candidates, including Hillary Clinton.
In a six-count federal grand jury indictment Ala'a al-Ali, who lives in the Dominican Republic, is charged with conspiracy and making illegal contributions to the 2008 presidential campaigns of Arizona Senator John McCain, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and the nation’s new Secretary of State.
Federal prosecutors say Ali arranged for at least $60,000 in illegal donations to be funneled into the three presidential campaigns and $5,000 to the campaign of Florida Republican Governor Charlie Crist. To circumvent federal limits on individual contributions as well as a ban on foreign donations, Ali recruited Southern California residents to cut the checks and later reimbursed them.

My comment - I wonder how many other donors used this illegal method to flood campaign money to candidates using citizens as "fronts" to cover their tracks.
