Clinton's Irish Cocktail Party - Bring Your Own Straws
Guess who is coming to dinner in Dublin?
None other than former US president Bill Clinton, who is mingling with a host of Ireland's elite at a fundraising bash on Saturday night.
The 1,600 euro (£1,145) a head dinner is in aid of his wife Hillary's presidential campaign fund - and the places have been much coveted.
The paper said that some Irish people who were so desperate to attend the fundraiser have been seeking out US citizens through whom they can channel the $2,300 (1,600 euro) admission charge.
Saturday, November 17th. Well, we'll just have to keep an eye out for that date when the fourth quarter disclosures are filed.
There really won't be much plausible deniability if this event generates a slew of illegal straw donations that are happily accepted by Hillary's campaign. Her denial of any suspicion of the massive election law violations that appear to have gone on under her nose in connection with the Norman Hsu scandal already stretch one's credulity to the breaking point.
Given the seriousness of the civil and criminal charges already filed in the case, the multiple ongoing federal investiations, and the huge dollar amounts allegedly stolen from investors to fund illicit contributions to her campaign, any slipshod vetting of donors comprising the quarter million dollars expected in the Dublin haul will be utterly indefensible if it enables additional exploitation of this documented Clintonian security chasm.
