Just uncovered by our friends at The People’s Cube: A fundraising letter from Hillary Clinton using a world-famous direct-mail firm located in Nigeria. Here’s how it begins:
Dear progressive! I solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue of its
> nature as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL and TOP SECRET. I am Ms H.R. Clinton,
> a battered wife of an impeached president of a certain
> country sometimes referred to as Les Etats-Unis d’AmÃ©rique.
> I came to know of you via Daily Kos member list in my search for a reliable
> and reputable person to handle a very confidential transaction which
> involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to my campaign fund
> requiring maximum confidence.
> Norman Hsu, an honorable businessman who is wanted by authorities for
> failing to do a three year prison stretch based upon a no contest plea to
> grand theft swindling charges, needs to donate to my presidential campaign
> quid pro quo so that I could pardon him in case I collect enough money to
> become the next president of the aforementioned country.
> But the amount that Hsu and I had agreed on in this transaction exceeds the limits
> on campaign contributions from individuals. The political climate and legal issues
> preclude us from receiving the entire amount from Mr. Hsu as a lump sum donation.
Quick! Where’s my checkbook?
