Hillary Clinton’s shameful charge to a children’s charity

"Hillary Clinton says, “Success isn’t measured by how much the wealthiest Americans have, but by how many children climb out of poverty.” So why did she charge an exorbitant speaking fee to a charity that helps poor kids?

Fine, she sent the cash to another “nonprofit” — the family’s $2 billion foundation. But Condi Rice, another ex-secretary of state, gave her own (much lower) fee from the same outfit — the Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach, Calif. — back to the charity."

If Hillary is this cold to the kids and the organization. Then the little people in this country are gonna be in for a rude awakening if she wins

"Oh, and the woman who says she “has spent my life fighting for children, families and our country” gave her speech and left “without visiting any of the club’s facilities to meet the children who benefit from its services,” Politico reports."

1. The only mention of this "story" I can find is from right wing sites. Funny, huh. and then I found

this:


"The Clinton Foundation recently partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America to give 4 million at-risk children access to more nutritious food and provide a healthier environment."

4. Thanks for the link but

You should fix it as it goes to the photo gallery not the article. I did find it tho.

In the article it does say that the foundation has partnered with them but it doesn't say anything else other than the qoute supplied. I will look into what kind of funds were allocated to the charity just to be sure.

2. Wow, over 500 posts

since Feb 16, 2016 - and this one citing to the NYPost, a RW rag that has hated the Clintons since forever.

Could it be that you are one of those described in my second sig line? Hmm

6. Ah yet another

suspicious-looking newbie - or are you the same one under a different name?

In any event, it's buh-bye to you both.

5. Why don't you address the issues in the article instead of attacking the post.

Also you shouldn't assume.
