Teachout: Clinton’s FOUR BIG corruption problems
Remember when Zephyr Teachout willingly shared her views about Hillary Clinton’s FOUR BIG corruption problems in an Huffington Post op-ed?
The first corruption problem Teachout highlighted was the millions of dollars going to the Clinton Foundation. Teachout wrote:
The first is that she [Hillary Clinton] is intimately related to a foundation that raises millions of dollars on a daily basis from the most powerful corporations in the world. The second is that she and her husband have made millions of dollars in speaking fees from the most powerful corporations in the world. The third is that a Super PAC supporting her has raised money from individuals representing the most powerful corporations in the world. And the fourth is that shared by all candidates — her fundraising relies on donations from the most powerful wealthy individuals in America.
For the past several weeks, we’ve seen one negative headline after another regarding the Clinton Foundation, yet Teachout has been completely silent. As other Democratic voices – including Bernie Sanders – speak out we can’t help but wonder why Teachout hasn’t. Some are calling on Clinton to “cease all operations, all contact,” with the Foundation while others say it may need to shut down completely if Clinton wins.
Where does Teachout stand? Teachout should re-read her op-ed and take her own advice.
