Hillary's Sweatshop Money

Bookworm's got this story:
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has accepted campaign contributions from a Saipan garment-industry tycoon, sometimes described as a sweatshop operator, whose ties to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff have been part of the lobbying scandal investigation.
Interesting to put that in the context of this, from National Review:
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D., N.Y.) and Sen. Robert Menendez (D., N.J.), are promoting legislation that would ban any company owned by a foreign government from managing a U.S. terminal, widening out the outrage over the Dubai deal to a more general anti-foreign sentiment. The Democrats' chief constituency for protectionism, the unions, has been fanning the port controversy.
I wonder what her union budies will think of her dirty sweatshop money.
