Why John Edwards Is Not Blasting Hillary over Hsu

Yet John Edwards hasn’t yet commented on the Norman Hsu matter.

There’s no mention of Hsu on his web site. (A few blog posters have mentioned it on his site, but nothing from the campaign itself.)

John Edwards “hasn’t received a dime from Norman Hsu,” I’m told. It’s a golden opportunity to slam Hillary. So why the silence from the candidate himself?

Fieger was recently indicted on charges of conspiring to make $125,000 in illegal campaign contributions to …..

John Edwards in 2004.
