Hillary: Most Corrupt SecState Ever?

That’s not an outrageous conclusion after reading this story:

Hillary Clinton’s ties to large corporations have come under more scrutiny after it was revealed that dozens of companies that have donated millions to her family’s foundation also lobbied the State Department during her tenure as secretary of state.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the 60 companies who lobbied Clinton’s State Department between 2009 and 2013 donated over $26 million to the Clinton Foundation in that period. The donors include instantly recognizable names like General Electric, Exxon Mobil, and Boeing.

The Journal also reports that at least 44 of the 60 companies participated in philanthropy projects valued at $3.2 billion set up by the Clinton Global Initiative, which is a wing of the foundation. At least 25 of the companies also contributed to 15 public-private partnerships created by Clinton and coordinated by the State Department.

If you really want to get the money out of politics, a good start would be to get the Clintons out of politics. They’ve long used their officers, access, and fame as tools for self-enrichment.
