Maybe not all at once, Oldwhiskey, but here's a guy whose entire life is almost a match for LBJ or Bill Clinton. The NY Dems got plenty of money from "Honest Abe". Imagine, only two years for hiring a hit man:
He made a fortune building semi-enclosed "open-air" parking garages (which he claimed he pioneered -- he would say, "Cars don't catch cold!"), and he subsequently funded a number of endeavors.
Throughout his career he waged many failed campaigns for political office, including unsuccessful bids as "Honest Abe" for the U.S. Senate in 1974 (defeated in Democratic primary), for the New York City Council, for Manhattan Borough President in 1997, for Lieutenant Governor of New York, for New York State Comptroller in 1998, and for Mayor of Miami Beach, Florida. He did serve as treasurer for the New York State Democratic Committee in the 1960s and was elected to the City Commission of Miami Beach in 1989. His most recent attempt at running for political office was in 2004, when he ran as a third party candidate for US Senator from New York against Charles Schumer and other challengers. Schumer won 71% of the vote; Hirschfeld garnered less than 1%.In 1998, he offered $1,000,000 USD to Paula Jones to drop her sexual harassment lawsuit against former US President Bill Clinton. In 1999, he was cleared of charges he owed $3.3 million in back taxes.
In 2000, he was convicted of criminal solicitation for trying to hire a hit man to kill his former business partner Stanley Stahl, with whom he had a "survivor take all" business partnership. Hirschfeld was sentenced to three years in prison, of which he served two. When he got out of prison he ran for the U.S. Senate, calling himself "Honest Abe".
In its list of "Builders and Titans", Time magazine included Mr. Hirschfeld among the 100 "most influential business geniuses of the century."
