Hillary's fundraiser cut out Rosa Parks


Imagine if Bush had done this to save money.

Thousands of dollars in expenses, including more than $1,000 worth of rose petals, disappeared from a budget for a fund—raising gala on orders of David F. Rosen, who was the national finance director for Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2000 Senate race, a witness testified here today....

...the organizers of the gala did economize in one way, Mr. Krausen said; they decided against hiring a bigger and more expensive plane that could also have accommodated Rosa Parks, the civil rights figure. She did not attend the gala.
