It goes without saying there are literally millions of individuals who will never vote for Hillary Clinton. Due to recent IRS filings regarding the Clintons’ charitable foundation, that number is likely to go up.
Of the nearly $91.3 million the Clinton Foundation spent in 2014, just about $5.2 million went for charitable grants, per ProudCons.com.
The rest of the money went to salaries, employee benefits, fundraising, and “other expenses.”
Many GOP leaders have called the Clinton Foundation nothing more than a “slush fund” that promotes “pay-to-play” activities. In fact, the story is getting so many legs that IRS Commissioner John Koskinen actually referred congressional charges of these accusations to his tax agency’s exempt operations office for investigation.
Koskinen’s actions are in response to a July 15th initiative led by Representative Marsha Blackburn, referring the “lawless” organization to the FBI, IRS, and Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
Koskinen wrote back a week later with the following official reply: “We have forwarded the information you have submitted to our Exempt Organizations Program in Dallas.” This is the division that regulates the operations of public foundations and charities.
As any individual who has followed their careers knows, the Clintons are a walking double standard, and this is another case in point.
“They [the IRS] would go after conservative groups and religious groups and organizations, but they wouldn’t be looking at the Clinton Foundation for years,” Rep. Blackburn said. “It was as if they choose who they are going to audit and question. It’s not right.”
Interestingly enough, besides the $91 million in expenditures, another $50 million went under the vague “other expenses” column. Considering there have been a number of instances where benefits were provided to the Clintons in return for donations and vice-versa, this is a serious red flag. There are many questions regarding what you could spend that much on “other expenses.”
“In my opinion, there’s a lack of good governance,” Marsha Blackburn said. “There is the appearance of conflicts of interest, and there are continued questions about the financial dealings.” In other words, something stinks.
What do you think about the fact that the Clinton Foundation only used just over five percent of its expenditures for grants? Please share this story on Facebook and tell us because OUR voice is YOUR voice!
