"Mrs. Clinton has never been in the showroom," she insisted. "I have never billed her. We sold a coat to her assistant, and what she did with it I don't know."
Ok, so Hillary's got a $5,000.00 coat, and she didn't pay for it. That would make it a gift.
I believe the limit on gifts to congresscritters is $500.00. Hillary accepted, and is apparently using, an item worth 10 times that amount.
I would be great fun if Page Six called the Ethics Committee to ask the exact wording of the gift ban act. If they really wanted to get the right story, they'd find out who paid for the coat, and whose closet its hanging in.
It's kept in the closet next to Rose Law Firm billing records and copies of FBI files.

If this was a sheared mink coat, made of matched (not dyed) pelts from males (longer richer fur) and if it was custom fitted, somebody threw down a lot more than $5,000 to put that on Hillary. My guess would be more like $10K to $15K anyway.

28 posts until someone got the REAL story here. Who cares what PETA say? Let's get a Clinton in the iron bar hotel! LOL

I think it's only $50.00.
