From the Big Apple to Buffalo, residents of New York State are expressing anger and disappointment toward former President Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in the wake of revelations about presidential pardons and items they took from the White House.
The Clintons have been surrounded by controversy since the former president granted 140 pardons on his last day in office.
First it was the pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich.
Then the revelation that Mrs. Clinton's brother received nearly $400,000 from two pardon-seekers.
Now federal prosecutors say they are examining whether Clinton commuted the sentences of four convicted swindlers in exchange for Hasidic Jewish votes that his wife received during her successful Senate run.
Yet another allegation involves Clinton's half brother, Roger Clinton, who has admitted unsuccessfully lobbying the former president to pardon six of his friends.
Mrs. Clinton said she was not aware of her brother's involvement or his $400,000 fee and has previously denied influencing her husband to gain the Hasidic Jewish vote.
Many Hasidic communities tend to vote in blocs, and because of that, politicians aggressively court their leaders.
Mrs Clinton has said previously that she sat in on a December meeting with supporters of clemency for the four Hasidic men.
But she said she played no part in her husband's decision to commute their sentences.
The former president has also denied wrongdoing in the Rich affair.
In interviews conducted Thursday and Friday across the state, New Yorkers, many of them former Clinton loyalists, told The Associated Press the almost daily dose of damaging details surrounding the last days of the Clinton White House had stunned them.
Republican supporters say they feel vindicated, but not all support for the Clintons has vanished and there are still people who feel the allegations are malicious.
Congressman Dan Burton is heading an ever-widening House probe into the pardons.
Other questions are surfacing as to the possible role of Clinton friend and Hollywood producer Harry Thomason who may have made a call to the President about the pardons.
One congressional investigator cautioned on Friday that "the picture is so incomplete" about how the Clinton White House operated in the final days that there may be more yet to uncover.
"I did not have any involvement in the pardons that were granted or not granted."
SUPER CAPTION: Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
"I think that any rational analysis of the situation would say that this work that I as an attorney did on behalf of these two individuals really had nothing to do with my role as treasurer of Senator Clinton's campaign. My responsibilities to her were completely independent of this and in the light of day. I see no actual conflict and no appearance of conflict."

"First, did they get money for what they did? Second, was there quid pro quo?"
