THE CONTINUING STORY OF BUNGALOW HILL
Some poor Paws lend Hillary a hand:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign aides yesterday said they won’t return tens of thousands of dollars contributed by a seemingly low-income family living in a tiny bungalow tied to one of the Democratic Party’s biggest donors.
The campaign’s response came a day after The Wall Street Journal reported on the donations from the Paw family of Daly City, Calif.
The father, William, is a mail carrier, and the mother, Alice, is a homemaker. They live in a one-story green bungalow - yet six Paws have given a combined $45,000 to Clinton’s Senate and presidential campaigns in the past two years.
In total, the Paw family – haven’t the Paw done well under George W. Bush? – donated around $200,000 to various Democrats, possibly as a cover for clothing magnate Norman Hsu. Which leads us to the sensationally-named Winkle Paw:
Winkle Paw told the Journal that he had sometimes given money at Hsu’s request to candidates, but that what he spent was his own.
A man who answered Winkle Paw’s cellphone yesterday hung up on a Post reporter.
No need to get catty about it, Winkle Paw. Reporters may have better luck with Winkle’s sister … Dimple Paw.
UPDATE. An election expert picks his winning team:
Add another name to the list of political observers who think a Clinton-Obama ticket would be unbeatable: Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
They’d sure be an interesting team, what with Clinton’s rigid on-message pathology and Obama’s freewheeling crazy-talk.
