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.

Well, well, well. Looks like the Clinton Scandals have started anew.

You think they would have learned after all these years.

Bubba and Queen Tubba think they're above scrutiny. Why not when the MSM is in their back pocket.

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.

The three elephants in the room:

1-
the clintons' 1 rape of Juanita Broaddrick 2

2-
the clintons' terrorism failure 3.

3- the clintons' documented abuse of power 4 (redacted via clinton abuse of power!)

Our candidate must understand and use
THE 120 PAGES
THAT WILL SINK THE CLINTON CANDIDACY FORTHWITH
AND PUT AN END TO THE CLINTONS IN OUR FACE ONCE AND FOR ALL
.
