"Five years ago, Aaron Tonken was riding high, hobnobbing with Hollywood celebrities and helping to raise millions for the Senate bid of first lady Hillary Clinton. Last month, a federal court un sealed an indictment charging the national finance director for Mrs. Clinton's 2000 campaign, David Rosen, with four counts of causing false reports to be filed with the Federal Election Commission. All of those charges stem from a star-studded August 12, 2000, gala fund-raiser that (Aaron) Tonken organized and billed as a "Hollywood Salute" to President Clinton."Where is Tonken today? He is in a federal prison serving a 63-month sentence for mail and wire fraud. Just another example of "Friends of The Clintons". While Bill and Hillary seem to always escape scrutiny, riding out of Dodge on their white steeds, their friends end up under indictment, in prison or dead. Just food for thought.
