Hillary Clinton MrsSatan
Fails To Report Family Charity
From The WaPo:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton failed to list on annual Senate financial disclosure forms the family charity she operates with former president Bill Clinton, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday.
Sen. Clinton, a Democratic presidential contender, has been an officer in the family foundation since it was established in 2001, but none of her ethics reports since then have disclosed that fact as required by congressional ethics rules, the newspaper said.
The foundation has enabled the Clintons to write off more than $5 million from their taxable income since 2001, while dispensing $1.25 million in charitable contributions over that period, the newspaper reported.
"The details of the Clintons' charitable family foundation and Senator Clinton's role in it have always been publicly available but, in an oversight that leaders of both parties have made, it was inadvertently omitted from her Senate filing, which has been corrected," Clinton's spokesman Philippe Reines told the newspaper.
No...no...it's not "an oversight" or "after examining our records"...it's more like
Her defenders will need to drink extra quantities of Kool-Aid to fend off legitimate and justified criticism on this one.
Oh...gee...did the WaPo NOT mention she failed to do the above filing FIVE - yes, 5 - times. Huh, they didn't. Yeah, this little disclosure oversight happened FIVE times. That's all.
