California: Rosen testifies in his defense

AP reports: A former fundraiser for Sen. Hilary Rodham Clinton testified Tuesday that he relied on others to oversee production costs of a lavish Hollywood party and never told anyone to alter or hide the price tag of the event.

"I would never do that," David Rosen said after taking the witness stand in his defense. "The costs were concealed from me for whatever reason by people who were putting this on."

On cross-examination, prosecutors questioned how someone who was running the national fundraising effort for the then-first lady would be so out of the loop. -- AP Wire | 05/24/2005 | Clinton fundraiser says he never had event costs altered
