Clinton Bundler Sent to Prison for Buying Ambassadorship W/$200K in Illegal Contributions

The timing for the sentencing is good. He’ll get out of prison a little before Hillary Clinton can get the opportunity to pardon him.

A northern Virginia businessman was sentenced Friday to more than two years in prison for illegally funneling nearly $200,000 to Hillary Clinton’s political campaigns in 2006 and 2008.

William Danielczyk, 51, of Oakton pleaded guilty in February to violating campaign-finance laws by reimbursing employees of his company, Galen Capital, and others who were recruited to attend fundraisers and make contributions Clinton’s Senate and presidential campaigns.

There are no allegations Clinton or her campaign acted improperly.

Hillary Clinton failed to testify, but if she had, I’m sure it would have gone something like this. “What difference does it make?”

The sentence of 28 months was roughly half of the five-year maximum sought by prosecutors in U.S. District Court. Danielczyk’s lawyers, meanwhile, argued that many similar violations of the campaign-finance laws had resulted only in probation.But prosecutor Eric Gibson disputed that, citing grand jury testimony that Danielczyk had told others he hoped to land an ambassadorship and saw fundraising as a means to achieve it.

I think that maybe in lieu of a sentence, maybe he should get an ambassadorship. I hear we have an opening in Libya.
