    Hint: your outrage here is as phoney as a three dollar bill, your ignorance of what liberals think is painful, and your fear of Clinton as a presidential candidate in 2016 is palpable.

    You've never heard a liberal say the rich should pay more taxes?

    The problem appears to be that the Clintons are using the Clinton Foundation as a 501(c)3 tax free non-profit organization while Hillary Clinton is using it as a springboard to the Presidency. Recall this was the same tax code under which the IRS investigated conservative groups.

    Hillary Clinton's next act: The family foundation - Maggie Haberman - POLITICO.com

    Robert Gibbs has said she intends to use the Foundation as a "springboard to the Presidency', which is clearly illegal.

    Puhleeze...I know liberal progressives like the back of my hand..And my outrage? I am not outraged my angry friend, nor am I scared of Hillary. I don't want her anywhere near the oval office sure, but 2016 is a long way off.

    I think your act of indignant anger is wearing thin, most people just roll their eyes anymore.

    "wrong" is subjective, I think the same of your theories about conservatives.

    You do not even know what my theories about conservatives are. And wrong is not subjective. Keep trying though. Maybe you can manufacture something out of nothing here, but I doubt it.

    Meh.

    Look at the size of it. You're barking up the wrong tree here.

    Articles like these are meaningless until they present the size of the organization.

    Also, your partisan hackery is showing.

    You have proof this?

    FYI, you're dealing with a CPA who has years in non-profit work. You make an ignorant comment, I will point it out.

    while Hillary Clinton is using it as a springboard to the Presidency
    Conjecture at the moment, probably true, but still conjecture. Furthermore, hacks will argue that any promotion of Clinton will do this. Even if the activities that are involved have nothing to do with her Presidential Campaign.

    Recall this was the same tax code under which the IRS investigated conservative groups.
    Flat Up Wrong. There has been nothing about the Clinton Foundation being used as a non-profit to directly provide political advertising for Clinton or against her potential opponents. You are entirely wrong here and you are highly ignorant of what the code actually says. Saying that the code in which the IRS went after political groups (including liberal ones, which were the only ones denied, I see how you left that out), and this is extremely wrong. Clinton getting exposure from non-profit work such as disease prevention is not the same as running a non-profit that doesn't have to disclose donors and using it to directly influence political campaigns by explicitly endorsing or attacking candidates. Learn the law before opening your mouth.

    This from the NYT, and even they have trouble with it. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/14/us....html?hp&_r=1&
    How does this support your claim at all? Did you even read the article? Where does it say anything that supports your claims?

    They will work on organizing Mrs. Clinton’s packed schedule of paid speeches to trade groups and awards ceremonies and assist in the research and writing of Mrs. Clinton’s memoir about her time at the State Department, to be published by Simon & Schuster next summer.
    The only part of the article that remotely supports you is this, but that depends how it's done. Writing up a biography used on the website or to be read before she speaks is hardly the same as running an ad in a state saying X candidate is bad.

    Robert Gibbs has said she intends to use the Foundation as a "springboard to the Presidency', which is clearly illegal.
    Why? How is using a non-profit to raise your exposure without direct political activity equate to breaking the 501(c) law?

    You made so many errors here it's not funny.
