Hillary Finishes Paying Off Campaign Debt, Starts Year With $204,832.97 Cash on Hand

Weekly Standard

Just before Hillary Clinton testified on Capitol Hill about the terror attack in Benghazi, her 2008 presidential campaign filed paperwork revealing that millions of dollars worth of debt had finally been repaid.

 And, in fact, Clinton’s presidential campaign now has $204,832.97 cash on hand. That money can be used for future campaigns, should Hillary Clinton decide to run again for public office. She has not, however, made a public announcement on whether she is planning to run for president in 2016.

Some of the final disbursements from Clinton’s 2008 campaign, according to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission, were three payments to the polling firm Penn Schoen & Berland LLC, run by Mark Penn and Doug Schoen. The three payments were for the amounts of $19000.00, $27000.00, and $27000.00. Other disbursements included tax bills to Washington, D.C., Maryland, and the federal government’s Internal Revenue Service.

    “Clinton faced restrictions on fundraising to retire her debt because of her position of secretary of state, but was able to receive some funds from the Obama campaign. ”

    If this isn’t illegal, it should be. How is this not patent corruption, a political kickback?

    Why are “campaign” funds able to be used as a petty cash slush fund? (Or worse, be kept as income by a failed, or retiring candidate ?!)

    Paid off her debt right after Obama is reelected,and just before she testifies on Bengazi, could it have been paid off with a payoff.

    All three branches of the federal gov’t are corrupt.

    All three branches of the federal gov’t are conniving to turn us into socialist slaves.

    All three branches of the federal gov’t are infested by criminals and must be treated as such.

    All three branches of the federal gov’t are committing treason every time they steal a dollar.

    The recent election proved there is NO fair electoral process for redress.
