Why isn't this a bigger story?

After reading this piece in The New York Times, I have to wonder why the story about the crooked Hillary campaign finance director isn't bigger news? The paper buried this on B2, in the local section of the paper. The trial involves a major figure in the campaign of a sitting Senator, the former first lady. The most damaging testimony was from an event planner who said that she was told to hide thousands of dollars in expenses for a star-studded celebrity gala. Is Hillary responsible? Well, we don't know, and prosecutors are careful not to allege this, but you'd think this would be at least a national story.

And I agree with this Salon piece [watch annoying ad]. This really damages her presidential hopes, I think. Republicans will justifiably use this relentlessly in any campaign.
