There probably has never been a New Year's vow broken faster by a politician than this latest vow made by Hillary Clinton to her donors. Marc Humbert wrote in "Hillary Clinton starts talking tough.." (below)
In a post-New Year's Day thank-you note to donors, Clinton assured them she would fight for "an end to cronyism, incompetence and cover-ups."
Clinton's assurance, first cousin to one of her infamous vows, seems to be designed to once again deceive and defraud her donors. Much like when Hillary vowed through the Washington Post a few months before her Senate election that she "would take no money from Peter Paul, and will return any she did receive."
Only seven days after the Post published that vow from Hillary's official spokesman Howard Wolfson, her finance director faxed a new request to Peter Paul for an additional $100,000 contribution to be made in negotiable securities rather than cash- so it could be hidden from opponent Lazio and the voters.
Hillary can now show her new commitment to "fighting cronyism and coverups" by coming clean on her campaign treasurer's admitted role in violating the Federal Election Law by filing false FEC reports hiding more than $721,000 contributed by Peter Paul. After five years of denying his responsibility for filing three false FEC reports that hid more than $1.2 million from Paul, lying about it to the FBI investigators that caused his subordinate David Rosen to be indicted and tried in May, 2005 for "causing" the false reports to be prepared and signed by Grossman, and then perjuring himself in the criminal trial of Rosen, he has admitted his culpability in an FEC settlement agreeement on December 13, 2005!
Hillary has been aware of this cover up since August, 2001, when she began directing it. She admitted at the time that the largest fund raising event of her campaign cost more than $1 million to produce.Yet eight weeks later, in her last FEC report before her election, she reported the event cost only $366,000, and that it was a contribution from a public company (that had told her finance director it was not contributing anything)
Hillary stood by as a third false FEC report was filed with her knowledge on July, 30, 2001,while she was working with her lawyer David Kendall in preparing a 300 page demurrer on a civil fraud suit she received from Peter Paul on July 3, 2001. She filed the 300 page pleading only five days after the last false report was filed. The civil fraud suit, accompanied by a demand letter, an FEC complaint, with all checks and invoices attached, two press conferences, and a syndicated story on the subject provided clear and convincing evidence that the amount spent on her behalf by Peter Paul was more than $1;6 million, not the $366,000 she intentionally misattributed to Paul's company. She covered it up and protected her treasurer crony until this very day!
So, bravo for Hillary's New Year's "resolution" to fight her own actions and proclivities. We can now expect that she will forthwith proceed to the Senate ethics committee and come clean about all the illegal and unethical things she did, with her cronies, in order to win her Senate election. Since the "cronies" that she will expose in this affair include two DNC Chairman and her then President husband, her fight will yield tremendous results in winning the war against the detestable culture of corruption that she castigates regularly.
GET VIDEO CLIP HERE
The video clip above, showing a cover up in real time, should be delivered to the Senate Ethics Chairman with an apology from Hillary to all her fellow Senators, explaining how and why she covered up her relationship with her largest campaign contributor, how she stonewalled the media and the FBI investigators and refused to act in accordance with the legal and purported ethical requirements of conduct required of a U.S.Senator.
After she apologizes to her colleagues and the voters, then she should get out her checkbook and finally refund the money her campaign has now finally admitted she illegally hid. It illegally excessive and demanding of a refund. Not just because the law requires it, but because she vowed to the public that,
".. we will not be accepting any contributions from him," Clinton campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson vowed. and she would refund any contributions received from that man, Peter Paul.
She'll be pushing to have the Barrett report released un-censored.
bump on hillery
Ok, that's two so far ... any more?
Thanks for the ping!
She would look 'smashing' in day-glo orange.
She will never be convicted of anything. We can only hope that we keep her out of the White House.
Here is a bump.
Taxman Bravo Zulu! to you Doug, for what you are doing for America!
Persist! Persist! Persist! Above all else, persist!
Fight cover ups, Mrs. Clinton?
Sure, let's start with Able Danger.
She is going to resign and turn herself in?
Thanks for the ping!
