The Clintons' Favorite Daly City Address
The green house you see above is located at 41 Shelbourne Ave., Daly City, California. As the WSJ reported this morning, six residents of that house -- all members of the Paw family, who all apparently received Social Security cards in 1982 -- have given a total of more than $45,000 to Hillary's various campaigns since 2005.
Coincidentally (or not) Norman Hsu, a wealthy New York businessman, who has pledged to raise more than $100,000 for Hillary's presidential campaign, once lived in the same house -- or at least listed the address. Moreover, Mr. Hsu's giving patterns seem to mirror those of the Paw family: in 2004, both Hsu and the Paw wrote a series of checks to John Kerry's campaign on or about the same day.
It is, to be fair, unlikely that neither Hillary nor Kerry are aware of any connection between Mr. Hsu and the Paws. But there's no question that frontrunners -- and their respective staffs -- are held to higher standards on fundraising. Just ask John Edwards in 2004.
