Clinton Still Takes a Hit and Obama is Keeping the Money! (For Now) Update: Obama decides to give it away after all

Co-blogger Dave in Texas noted that Clinton and Franken are giving their questionable donations from convicted felon Norman Hsu to charity. A Clinton spokesman is reported as saying:

"We regularly review contributions as we receive them," he said, adding that "we will continue our practice of scrutinizing contributions and, should we have a basis to return a contribution, we will do so.

Former (Bill) Clinton campaign strategist Hank Sheinkopf doesn’t sound like such a fan of the senator from New York. He says:

They've taken money from criminals in the past; now we learn that Sen. Clinton took money from people when they don't know where their money came from -- bundled money from a convicted felon. That ain't good.

The same article says that the Obama campaign has no plans to return the money.

Update: According to Friday's NYTimes, Obama will give away $7,000 he received from Hsu.
