Everyone knows Senator Hillary Clinton is raising a lot of money, A LOT! But the Los Angeles Times has started looking into where some of that money is coming from.

Everyone knows Democrats get a lot of money from rich liberals, but Clinton is getting Little did the poor know that she was talking to them.money from poor dishwashers and people that don’t seem to exist. This has raised some red flags in the media and even her campaign, or so they say.

Here is just some of what the LA Times found:

Census figures for 2000 show the median family income for the area was less than $21,000. About 45% of the population was living below the poverty line, more than double the city average.

Dishwashers, waiters and others whose jobs and dilapidated home addresses seem to make them unpromising targets for political fundraisers are pouring $1,000 and $2,000 contributions into Clinton’s campaign treasury. In April, a single fundraiser in an area long known for its gritty urban poverty yielded a whopping $380,000.

One New York man who said he enthusiastically donated $2,500 to Clinton doesn’t appear to be eligible to do so under federal election law. He said he came to the United States from China about two years ago and didn’t have a green card.

A man named Liang Zheng was listed as having contributed $1,000. The address given was a large apartment building on East 194th Street in the Bronx, but no one by that name could be located there.

Many poor donors in the article say they felt pressure from community leaders to donate, though it doesn’t mention where they actually got the money to give.

The Clinton campaign should not be taking money from these poor neighborhoods. They should the honorable thing, return the money to people who need it much more than the campaign does and stop working with community leaders to apply pressure to donate.

And don’t even get us started on how the actual source of this money needs to be investigated. The ties between the Clintons and Chinese Communist cash is well documented.
