Senator Clinton's support in the Indian American community has been getting a lot of coverage of late. This piece in the Washington Post is typical. I think that USINPAC Chairman, Sanjay Puri, makes a good point in the article. The fact is that both Bill and Hillary Clinton have a long history reaching out to the Indian American community and Indian Americans clearly appreciate that the Clintons feel warmly towards India.
As the community continues to get more and more involved in politics, we will certainly see a lot more articles on campaign contributions. That is to be expected, and it is good for community that our active participation and fundraising in noted in major publications. It really highlights how important it is for community leaders who are fundraising for any candidate to go the extra mile to comply with the letter and spirit of campaign finance laws. It would be a real shame if a few bad apples tarnish the reputation of the community when proper political participation and fundraising is something we should all be proud and excited about.
