    The revelation that one of Hillary Clinton's major donors is wanted for fraud is the first time her hitherto relentlessly disciplined campaign has been thrown on the defensive.

    So far, it is no more than a temporary embarrassment for Mrs Clinton. There is no suggestion she had any personal knowledge of Norman Hsu's tainted background. But Mrs Clinton, more than any other candidate because of the scandal-plagued White House years of her husband - has sought to project an image of financial and moral integrity.
