On August 17, 2000, the Washington Post quotes Hillary's spokesman Howard Wolfson, who admits Gala cost of "$1 million plus" was an "In-Kind" Contribution "not a check" and that no contributions would be accepted from Peter Paul
August 18, 2000, TWO DAYS AFTER denying to the Washington Post that she knew Paul, or that he contributed to her campaign, Hillary sends Personal Thank You Letter to Paul .
On August 18, 2000, the same day that Hillary sends a special thank you to Paul, Bill sends a handwritten letter thanking Paul for the "boost" the "wonderful event gave Hillary's campaign". This note was intended to induce Paul not to dispute the false statements made by Hillary's campaign to the Washington Post on August 14 and August 16 regarding Paul's role with Hillary's Senate campaign.
August 24, 2000, seven days after the Washington Post publishes story that Clinton's spokesman announced the refund of Paul's $2,000 check to Hillary's campaign, and that no contributions would be accepted from Paul, Hillary's Finance Dir Rosen asks Paul for $100,000 in stock to be transferred by his controller, Gordon, to Hillary's NY Working Family Party for Hillary.
August 24, 2000, a week after Hillary told the Washington Post through her spokesman Wolfson, that Paul's $2000 contribution had been returned and that she would not accept any money from Paul, Hillary's Finance Director David Rosen Sends Wiring Instructions For Working Family Party to Launder Paul's Contribution of Stock Worth $100,000 to Hillary's Campaign After Hillary Pledged with Lazio Not to Use Soft Money

The absurdity of Hillary's campaign reporting that the TOTAL gala expense was $366,000, in its first FEC report filed two weeks before the election, is magnified by Hillary spokesman Howard Wolfson's admission to the Washington Post, three days after the event, that the event cost over $ 1 million and was an in kind contribution to her campaign. These facts confirm the fraudulent intent of Hillary's campaign to hide the true costs of her largest fundraising event from the voters and the FEC.
On December 13, 2005, Hillary's campaign treasurer Andrew Grossman, formally admitted in a settlement with the FEC that he had violated the Federal Election Law by hiding more than $720,000 of Paul's contributions in the three false FEC reports he signed and filed! This raises the question of Grossman's false testimony in the Rosen trial and his obstruction of the FBI investigation that led to Rosen's indictment and trial!
Hillary saw this check, and others like it, in early July, 2001, when it was hand delivered to her Senate chambers with Paul's demand letter to report his contributions to the FEC on July 16, 2001, it was also attached to Paul's civil complaint against her as a defendant, filed June 18, 2001 and it was attached to an FEC complaint against her filed on July 16, 2001 and hand delivered to her senate offices that day. Nonetheless, she ignored it, and the other checks and invoices attached when she aided and abetted a third false FEC report to be filed by her Senate campaign Treasurer, Andrew Grossman, on July 30, 2001.

On July 30 2001 Hillary's Campaign Treasurer Andrew Grossman, sent this letter response/report to a request by the FEC for more information on Event 39 (the Farewell Gala). July 30, 2001 was two weeks after Hillary, her lawyer David Kendall, Grossman and Bill Clinton were served as co-defendants with the civil complaint for fraud and coercion filed by Paul on June 18, 2001; a demand letter that was hand delivered to Hillary's Senate chambers on July 16, 2001 with a copy of a Federal Election Complaint filed by Paul - all accompanied by checks and invoices to support Paul's claims of more than $1.2 million contributed on Hillary's behalf. This 3rd Fraudulent FEC Report was filed by Grossman with the knowledge and assistance of Hillary, Bill and David Kendall who had begun working on the 300 page response Hillary filed on August 5, 2001 in the civil case.
Hillary Clinton's campaign knew how to comply with Federal Election Regulations as shown by Hillary's report of professional services, valued at $2000 for each photograph taken by her friend and celebrity photographer Annie Liebovitz, of each $25,000 contributor to Hillary's campaign.
As required by FEC regulations, when professional services are contributed to help a federal candidate raise funds, those services must be reported as an "in kind" contribution by the service provider or producer, based on the fair market value of those services. However, when it came to the fair market value of the professional services that Peter Paul had eight international singing stars contribute to help Hillary raise hard dollar contributions through the Gala concert, no similar report was made!
Hillary witnessed the services being provided by Cher, Diana Ross, Patti La Belle, Tony Braxton, Melissa Ethridge, Michael Bolton, Sugar Ray and Paul Anka, and yet she did not have ANY of their service contributions reported as she did with Annie Liebovitz. This amounted to an additional $1 million in in kind contributions being hidden by Hillary's campaign.
