Dick Morris has some interesting things to say on the recent scandal of Hillary's Finance guy's indictment. Of course, this has not been front page news since this isn't a Republican. Dick explains why it's a big deal and how it's impossible that Hillary didn't know about this.

The question of who understated the cost of the Hollywood event now joins the pantheon of questions that have haunted the senator's past — Who hid the billing records? Who ordered the travel office firings? Who helped Hillary to make a killing in the commodities market? Did the first lady know her brother was paid to secure a pardon for a major drug trafficker? Did Hillary represent the Madison Bank in a fraudulent real-estate deal? Who ordered the removal of the FBI files?

Hillary's ethical obtuseness is truly Nixonian. Usually campaign-finance filing errors are so mundane that they draw light fines from the Federal Elections Commission. That her campaign committed so important a breach of the finance laws that govern elections that her finance chairman is under a federal indictment is truly extraordinary.

Of course it isn't like Hillary hasn't skated before and probably will skate again!
