Udall Taken to Task Again for Tainted Contributions

Chris Rodriguez of Wrongmont.com elaborates on a point made earlier on this site - namely, that Boulder liberal Rep. Mark Udall's returned $1,000 contribution from Chinese criminal fundraiser Norman Hsu is just the tip of the iceberg.

Writes Rodriguez:
On top of the $1,000 [Udall is] giving back, let’s not forget the $5,000 he got from the Hsu funded “For A Change PAC”, the $10,000 from the Hsu funded “Searchlight Leadership Fund” (Harry Reid’s PAC), and $40,000 from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committees, also recipients of large Hsu donations.

Given recent history of Chinese contributors (more “Friends of Bill”), wouldn’t you run for the hills if someone like this approached you? This speaks poorly of Congressman Udall and his staff’s judgment at the very least. If accepting these donations were no accident or coincidence, it says much worse. Cunningham and Abramoff better make room for company, and I’m not talking about visitors.

A fine point raised: What will Udall do with the other tainted money his campaign has taken in?
