Clinton Foundation accused of trading ex-president’s presence for donation

….. According to the report, Clinton agreed to accept a lifetime achievement award at the June 2014 gala, hosted by the Happy Hearts Fund, only after founder Petra Nemcova offered to give $500,000 to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Sue Veres Royal, the group’s executive director at the time who was later “dismissed,” alleged that this amounted to a “quid pro quo.” 

She told the Times the foundation had rejected an invitation from the Happy Hearts Fund “more than once.” That changed, she said, when “there was a thinly veiled solicitation and then the offer of an honorarium.” …..

    Reminds me of Godfather III when Michael uses his family “charity”, the Vito Corleone Foundation that is chaired by his daughter, to enrch himself.

    OT, but I had to find a place to put this quote.

    “(Bob) Schieffer echoed similar comments during an interview with The Associated Press earlier this week, saying he’s disturbed by the changes he’s seen in Washington. It’s a meaner place, he said, partially fueled by Internet anonymity but also by a lack of collegiality. Lawmakers of all stripes and their families used to know each other better but now spend more time in their districts and less time in the capital. Some families never move.”

    Heaven forbid that our representatives spend more time amongst us unwashed serfs! The horror!

    Don’t let the door hit you on the ass Bob.

      ““We now don’t know where people get their news, but what we do know is they’re bombarded with information 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Most of the information is wrong and some of it is wrong on purpose,” Schieffer said. “It is our job, I think, in mainstream journalism to try to cut through this mall of information and tell people what we think is relevant in what they need to know. That is the job of the journalist and I have to say it’s harder and harder.””

      Very good news. Journalism has always been propaganda, at least since the Nice War, aehm, I mean the Civil War. (Lincoln jailed 70 or so newspaper editors for criticizing the war effort)
