Democrats top fundraiser is a fraud?

Nemazee, a Top Fundraiser for Party, Is Charged With Fraud Related to Loan.
Just 11 months ago, Hassan Nemazee ranked as one of the Democratic Party's premier money men -- hosting a $28,500-a-head fundraiser in his luxurious home on New York's Upper East Side for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The charges prompted a scramble among top Democrats to distance themselves from Nemazee, 59, who together with his wife has contributed more than $750,000 over the past 15 years to federal committees and candidates, including Obama, Vice President Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, records show.

Biden and several others pledged to return at least some of Nemazee's campaign contributions or donate them to charity, while the Democratic National Committee -- which controls Obama's campaign chest -- said it is considering doing the same.

  • The National Republican Senatorial Committee called on Senate Democrats to "return any and all contributions that they received from this disgraced financier to preserve the integrity of fundraising efforts in 2010."

  • Kind of like a former governor of Alaska who set up funds for people to pay her legal fees? It goes all around with these a$$hole politicans and their fundraising. Which is why they will never see a dime from me. I won't even check the box on my income tax return to donate a dollar to these jerkoffs.
