Forget the contributors. Just look at the return on investment. According to the Federalist, the foundation only spends 15% on charity, the rest must be “overhead.”
Between 2009 and 2012, the Clinton Foundation raised over $500 million dollars according to a review of IRS documents by The Federalist (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008). A measly 15 percent of that, or $75 million, went towards programmatic grants. More than $25 million went to fund travel expenses. Nearly $110 million went toward employee salaries and benefits. And a whopping $290 million during that period — nearly 60 percent of all money raised — was classified merely as “other expenses.” Official IRS forms do not list cigar or dry-cleaning expenses as a specific line item. The Clinton Foundation may well be saving lives, but it seems odd that the costs of so many life-saving activities would be classified by the organization itself as just random, miscellaneous expenses.
P.S.- The cost is 50 million. That’s right 50,000,000! for flying the gang around. And you know that’s light compared to the free rides they get from their rich buddies and private jets.
Sweet gig if you can get it!
Which is why the Obamas and Valerie want it.
