The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid.

On its 2013 tax forms, the most recent available, the foundation claimed it spent $30 million on payroll and employee benefits; $8.7 million in rent and office expenses; $9.2 million on “conferences, conventions and meetings”; $8 million on fund-raising; and nearly $8.5 million on travel. None of the Clintons are on the payroll, but they do enjoy first-class flights paid for by the Foundation. 

By some estimates the Clinton Foundation has not accounted for $300 million of the $500 million it has raised. And then there is the question of speaking fees. No, not Bill or Hill's $200,000 to $750,000 per day fees for denouncing "the rich" and "CEO pay" but the fact that those hoping to influence those who they believe will control the increasingly dictatorial American Presidency are paying Chelsea Clinton $75,000 a pop.

The question isn't that all of this is corrupt,  the question is what is it about our current oh so liberal establishment that would allow a convicted perjurer and his white house silver stealing wife to be the titular leaders of the left wing "peoples party" for over two decades?

The character of institutions and movements is expressed in the character of its leaders.
