There is an article on Huffington that says that Hillary takes lobbyist money from Pakistan. We know Hillary takes money from lobbyist, but from Pakistan?? What is wrong with this picture?
There is no law against taking money from Pakistan lobbyist, but it does bring up a lot of questions.
"While not prohibited by law, accepting such a donation necessarily raises questions about the effect this relationship--and similar ones--will have on her policies in the White House towards Pakistan should she win the 2008 contest, or in the US Senate should she not. The influence of money is never straightforward, of course."
Another candidate who is taking lobbyist money from Pakistan is Joe Biden. He has called for a freeze on aid to Pakistan. But you still have to wonder what kind of influence will this money buy.
