Earlier this year, top Clinton fundraiser Norman Hsu was found to be a fugitive avoiding prison for grand theft. A CIR investigation for Politico finds new examples of presidential candidates relying on fundraisers with questionable backgrounds.

And a Clinton fundraiser was barred from contracting for violating labor laws. Does the high-stakes campaign money race attract people with “shady” backgrounds?
