Skip to comments.Major Scandal Brewing Among Clinton Associates, Former DNC Official

A major scandal amoung influential Democrats just broke, and so far it appears to be flying under the radar. Stephen Losey at Federal Times has the scoop. bilde.jpg
In a nutshell: Alan Kessler, the former finance vice chair of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's finance chair during her 2008 campaign, resigned suddenly from his position on the USPS' Board of Governors last month. Turns out, he was pressuring postal officials to back off of a land deal that would have cost his friend, Douglas Band -- who is Bill Clinton's lawyer, helps run the Clinton Foundation and helped found the Clinton Global Initiative -- millions of dollars.
Band, some of his family members, and his business partners own property in Sarasota that the Postal Service has leased since the mid-60s. The original owner agreed to a clause that would let the USPS buy the property whenever they wanted to for a song -- $825,000 on a property now valued at $12 million. It turned out to be a really bad deal for the current owners (Band & Co.) but is apparently legal, according to everybody in the Postal Service except Kessler.

Aren’t all RATS scandals supposed to fly under the MSM radar?
They don’t fly, they slither.
Some things never change. You’d think the Clintons and their cronies would have enough money by now and they wouldn’t need to do things like this but, like the scorpion in the fable, I guess its just their nature.
Team Bammy eliminating a threat?
As for Alan Kessler, just another case of some political hack trying to serve two masters at one time.
Same shit every day with both parties.
It's not flying under the radar; the radar is not even on. It was turned off by the MSM.
Is there a “RAT LEADER or Follower” who isn’t Corrupt,Dispicable, and Hates AMERICA?
The Answer is “NO!”!! “Infinitely NO!!”
WAKE UP!! AMERICA!!
Typical Clinton cronyism.
The word “yawn” in KEYWORDS sums it all up for me.
Yet more slime from the king and queen of slime!
Will it EVER end?
exactly - somebody doesn’t want anyone to even consider challenging him.
Common everyday Dem cronyism
Barely even worthy of a response
Good post. Thanks. These POS socialists, their cronies they shuffle around in socialist-created jobs/NGOs or hook up with their neo-fascist business friends, their enablers and their something-for-nothing useful idiots have taken us far down the dark alley of destruction.
DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic...NOW. C’mon republicans/conservatives/tea party. We control the purse-strings. WAKE UP!
No shocker there. Between Bill and Hillary, the things they’ve done in their lifetimes would make the devil jealous, and turn him green with envy.
