An unlikely treasure-trove of donors for Clinton

The candidate's unparalleled fundraising success relies largely on the least-affluent residents of New York's Chinatown -- some of whom can't be tracked down.

When Bill was president there were serious allegations that the Chinese government had bought enormous influence in the Clinton White House and essentially funded his reelection campaign in 1996. When Bush was elected the story went away because the new president didn't want to press the issue. Clinton was gone and he wanted to be a 'uniter not a divider". Methinks we'll be hearing a lot more about this sort of thing in the coming months.

It makes you wonder what a night in the "Rincoln" bedroom costs these days
