    So now the press is interested in who is donating to whom? The Clinton Foundation may start getting concerned.

    While I can't stand most of the Republicans I certainly don't hold them responsible for the actions of all their donors, let alone for the actions of those influenced by the actions of some of their donors. And Democrats better be careful in capitalizing on it because I can assure you plenty of their donors will have dirt as well.

    I would find it shameful if every candidate had to vet every donor, but if they become aware of a donation from an objectionable source, they have full rights to return the funds.
    Lets get real. People of all political persuasion can be disgusting. While I abhor bigots of any sort, I defend their right to speak their mind and to donate to whomever they wish. America isn't made up of polite little robots who fit into preselected and acceptable categories.
    Seriously, vetting a candidate based on their donor list isn't high on my list of priorities?
