The campaign finance abuse hearings resumed yesterday. The Senate Governmental Affairs Committee headed by Tennessee Republican Senator Fred Thompson heard testimony from 3 Buddhist nuns involved in the Hsi Lai Temple fundraiser in Hacienda Heights California. Their heads shaved and wearing cinnamon colored robes, the nuns talked about throwing away lists of fundraiser participants, reimbursing contributors and one nun explained how she donated $5000.
