“The Clintons have denied any wrongdoing.”

They spend an incredible amount of time doing that, don’t they?

Much as I like to see the attention Clinton is getting from this — all bad — it really makes me question whether private money should be allowed in politics at all.

I can’t see politicians accepting money from individuals or groups and not feeling beholden to them. I don’t want my politicians beholden to anyone but me. How much of government spending is payback for campaign contributions ? Eliminating campaign contributions might be key to cutting government spending.

I think I’d rather the federal government set aside a billion dollars each year for political campaigns and make it illegal to accept private money. To qualify to run, you would just need to announce your candidacy and get signatures from some percentage of the registered voters. Getting those signatures would be the only phase where private money was allowed.

” “Mr. Paul, as a three-time convicted felon, has no credibility,” Mr. Kendall says. “

Mrs. Clinton, who habitually hires convicted felons to raise her campaign funds, has no credibility, no integrity, and no shame whatsoever.

She does, however, have balls the size of watermelons.

It really is amazing that the story by the WSJ is the only one. Anything there is a story about any issue, there are always multiple stories. It is like there is a media embargo.
