Hillary is giving back the direct contributions from Hsu. The rub is Hsu’s bundling which in an amusing paragraph the NY Times explains as follows:
“Some donations connected to Mr. Hsu raise questions about his bundling activities, although there is no evidence he did anything improper. The Wall Street Journal reported that contributors he solicited included members of an extended family in Daly City, Calif., who had given $213,000 to candidates since 2004, even though some of them did not appear to have much money.”
Really “no evidence”? Let’s call it a real big hint that something odd was going on.
UPDATE: Actually the print Wall Street Journal reminds me this morning there is more evidence than just that. Donations from the modestly incomed Paw family were made on the same days, to the same candidates and in similar amounts as those made by Hsu. Hsu also once listed the Paw home as his residence.
