NEWARK — Bergen County insurance broker Joseph Bigica, a deep-pockets Democratic contributor who won millions in no-bid government contracts across North Jersey, pleaded guilty Wednesday to making $98,600 in illegal campaign donations to an unnamed federal official. Bigica, a 46-year-old Franklin Lakes resident who appeared in federal court here, also pleaded guilty to evading federal taxes over a 10-year period beginning in 1999 and agreed to make restitution to the government of more than $2.1 million... Bigica’s beneficiaries include leading Democrats such as U.S. Reps. Steven R. Rothman and Bill Pascrell Jr., former Gov. Jim Florio, former U.S. Sen. Robert G. Torricelli and disgraced party figures such as ex-state Sen. Joseph Coniglio and former Hudson County Executive Robert Janiszewski.

Leaked emails from the intelligence group Stratfor recently revealed some shocking allegations of massive Democrat voter fraud in 2008. The emails revealed by WikiLeaks say that the McCain campaign decided to ignore the wide spread voter fraud in order to avoid massive civil unrest — even though it meant he’d lose the White House. The emails say that Democrats were caught “stuffing ballot boxes in Philly and Ohio,” but the McCain campaign decided to let it all go.

No, the Federal Election Commission found that the Manhattan Democrat for years illegally used a rent-stabilized apartment as a campaign office.

Vote fraud likely changed the 2008 Minnesota U.S. Senate race when Al Franken won by just a 312-vote margin. After the fact, investigators discovered the election was rife with fraud.

But by the time these investigations and prosecutions come to light, it is too late. Consequences?

WASHINGTON, May 25— John Huang, the prolific fund-raiser at the center of the furor over Democratic Party financing of President Clinton's re-election, will plead guilty in Federal court to a single felony count of conspiring to make illegal contributions, the Justice Department and Mr. Huang's lawyer said today. A frequent White House visitor and prominent figure behind Democratic efforts to solicit millions of dollars in political contributions from Asian-Americans, Mr. Huang was part of a fund-raising operation later found by Congressional investigators to be tainted by questionable or illegal contributions.

At a fundraising lunch held on April 29, 1996 at the Hsi Lai Temple in Hacienda Heights, California, and attended by Vice President Gore, Buddhist monastics illegally funneled $65,000 to the DNC through "straw donors" at the instigation of Hsia, a longtime fundraiser for the Vice President. When press accounts of this donation-laundering appeared, Temple officials altered and destroyed evidence to protect the Temple, Hsia, and the Vice President from embarrassment Despite his repeated, albeit inconsistent, denials, it is reasonable to conclude that the Vice President was well aware that the Temple event was for the purpose of raising money.

In mid-1995, the President and his strategists decided that they needed to raise and spend many millions of dollars over and above the permissible limits of the Presidential campaign funding law if the President was going to be reelected. They devised a legal theory to support their needs and proceeded to raise and spend $44 million in excess of the Presidential campaign spending limits.
