Foundation or own personal slush found?
Things that make you go hmm … The NY Post is reporting that the Bill Clinton Foundation has spent over $50 million on travel since 2003. Bill Clinton and his Foundation have certainly been in the news lately, for all the wrong reasons.
I did not spend that $50 million on travel, not a single time …
Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the non-profit’s tax forms reveal.
The web of foundations run by the former president spent an eye-opening $12.1 million on travel in 2011 alone, according to an internal audit conducted by foundation accountants. That’s enough to by 12,000 air tickets costing $1,000 each, or 33 air tickets each day of the year.
That overall figure includes travel costs for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are now attached) of $4.2 million on travel in 2011, the most recent year where figures are available.
As reported at Weasel Zippers, “Bubba’s foundation is also rife with cronyism according to a recent NYT investigation“.
