FLORENCE, S.C. - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday denied that her campaign traded money for an endorsement from one of South Carolina's most influential black politicians.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Clinton responded to questions about the consulting contract her campaign negotiated with state Sen. Darrell Jackson, who last week endorsed her candidacy rather than of top rivals John Edwards or Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.
"Senator Jackson was someone who was involved in my husband's campaigns. He was someone we turned to for political advice and counsel and I'm proud to have him on my team," Clinton told the AP.
Soon after the endorsement, Jackson acknowledged that his media consulting firm had negotiated a $10,000 per month contract with Clinton's campaign. Jackson has said he turned down more lucrative contracts from other candidates.

Hillary Clinton has dollars for endorsements, and she is lying about it. Anybody surprised?
At this point, I am not surprised at anything she does.

"Senator Jackson was someone who was
involved in my husband's campaigns corrupted years ago. He was someone we turned to for political advice and counsel muscle, graft and backdoor cash and I'm proud to have him on my team," Clinton told the AP.

Well, well, well. Looks like the Clinton Scandals have started anew.
You think they would have learned after all these years.

They learned that they can get away with this stuff.

This is very smart ans inexpensive use of money for Hitlery. She has ZERO chance of winning SC in the general election but MUST win here in this early primary state.
That's what the Post reported last Thursday:

I have read the story several times. There is no "defense" of the contract. The headline is a blatant lie. I wonder if someone on her staff is "helping" some of these writers "cover" Herevilself? You remember like Lanny Davis did during the Campaign Finance Scandal that was squelched by Janet Reno?

thx for the ping, Clintonfatigued. :)
Corruption is their essence.
We must make certain that whomever we nominate,
he will go after the clintons and their corruption aggressively
and not succumb to clinton blackmail or other clinton abuses of power.
