Ah, so maybe there WAS something to these allegations as well as a cover-up...
So who’s going after Hill?

Who was that controversial appointment by Obama of the first gay guy as ambassador to a country, was that Luxembourg? I wonder how that appointment is going.

He tapped Denise Bauer, who was finance chair for Women for Obama and raised more than $500,000 for the president’s re-election campaign, as ambassador to Belgium. She was also a key fund-raiser for the president’s 2008 campaign helping to bring in between $200,000 and $500,000 as well as raising $53,500 for the first inaugural. Bauer served on the campaign’s national finance committee last election as well as on the Democratic National Committee.

Not girls. Boys.

The park he trolled in Brussels is notorious for adolescent boy prostitutes.

Hill may not have known about the nefarious activities with the underage prostitutes or other allegations. I think she was lazy and spent most of her time at dinners, receptions, and parties drinking, and sleeping the rest of the time.

According to CNN, Gutman told Foggy Bottom he trolled the park filled with boy prostitutes to get away from his wife after fighting with her.

Gutman was brought back to D.C. to explain himself. Hillary knew.

Whether she did or did not know, she is head of State and it is her responsibility to manage her dept in an honorable, upstanding manner.
Her standing orders should have been that anything like this should be/ will be brought to her attention.
No excuses.....none.

Quite true, but she probably preferred being a Sgt Schultz.

But only after the whistle blower's disclosures.

No. Before:

After allegations of Gutman's misconduct arose, the ambassador was called back to Washington to meet Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy, but kept his job.

According to the New York Post, which also obtained State Department memos, Kennedy ordered the investigation ceased. Kennedy, in a statement to The Cable, denied allegations that he inhibited the State Department investigation.

Brilliant isn’t he?!

It sounds like a leaderless administration to me, anything goes as long as you hide it, no one seems to care what they do.

” Hillary knew.”

You bet she knew! It’s not as if she hasn’t learned how to defend philanderers or just ignore them as long as it doesn’t interfere with her political ambitions.
