COMMITTEE ETHICS 220 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, 20510 
Dear Senators: behalf 42, 112 members and supporters Judicial Watch who have signed the enclosed Petitions you, want join voice with theirs and urge you undertake Ethics Committee investigation into, among other issues, the personal role that Senator Hillary Clinton played her 2000 campaign's "Hollywood Tribute" fundraising scandal. Judicial Watch submitted complaint this matter the Committee May 2005. 
Senators, confident you are aware the facts surrounding this scandal, which more than $1.7 million event expenses and contributions went unreported the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Last year, federal grand jury indicted Senator Clinton's former National Finance Director, David Rosen, for his role the "Hollywood Tribute." recently learned that the FEC reached settlement with New York Senate 2000 over its violation federal campaign law. The FEC levied fine $35,000 against New York Senate 2000, which the "campaign" has agreed pay. 
During the trial David Rosen, testimony showed that Mrs. Clinton (and her campaign) should have known the misreporting the FEC. course, the information provided you our May 2005, complaint also implicated Mrs. Clinton, personally. 
The FEC' findings wrongdoing, the tacit admission wrongdoing New York Senate 2000, along with undisputed facts put the public record last year during the criminal trial David Rosen, make clear that the violations federal law related the "Hollywood Tribute" were part larger conspiracy that reached the highest levels the Clinton
campaign and into the White House itself.We believe that not pursuing properly Senator Indeed, the testimony James Levin David Rosen's criminal trial shows that the costs for least one other event involving the 2000 Clinton campaign was underreported the FEC (and the Secretary the Senate).

U.S. Senate Select Committee Ethics March 30, 2006 Page Two 
Clinton's personal role these violations law, the Ethics Committee abdicating its responsibility the American people. urge you take appropriate action immediately with respect Mrs. Clinton, who responsible for the "grossly inaccurate" FEC's filings. disturbing that the Ethics Committee does not publicize its activities even report back complainants the results any investigations. the five complaints Judicial Watch has filed with the Committee since 2001, have received substantive response only one them. This belies the Committee's strong defense recent days its effectiveness and diligence. this particular moment scandal and low public trust our public institutions, vitally important that your committee begin win back the confidence the American people showing real, serious commitment policing yourselves and enforcing the Senate's own ethical standards. are dismayed that far your Committee has not taken any public action our request. certainly hope that the visible commitment the more than 40,000 citizens who have signed our Petition will help motivate you the right thing. the meantime, because the demonstrable willingness Senator Clinton and her fundraising operation violate federal campaign finance laws and Senate ethics rules, Judicial Watch has initiated its own "Hillary Watch '06"' project, designed monitor and publicize irregularities and wrongdoing her reelection campaign this year. light her fundraising operation's poor record, also urge the Committee carefully scrutinize her current campaign's filings. 
However, believe justice cannot served the clear and obvious lawbreaking her first campaign for the U.S. Senate punished only the FEC's "slap the wrist" fundraising front operation. Despite any recent actions taken the Justice Department and FEC, the independent responsibility fully investigating and airing all the facts this matter remains with the Committee. Judicial Watch continues review Mrs. Clinton's activities and the record this matter and may follow with you appropriate. 
Thank you.
