    Bill Clinton foundation has spent more than $50M on travel expenses

    WASHINGTON – Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the non-profit’s tax forms reveal.The web of foundations run by the former president spent an eye-opening $12.1 million on travel in 2011 alone, according to an internal audit conducted by foundation accountants. That’s enough to by 12,000 air tickets costing $1,000 each, or 33 air tickets each day of the year.
    That overall figure includes travel costs for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are now attached) of $4.2 million on travel in 2011, the most recent year where figures are available.

    Oh man! $50 million? That is truly 1%er figures.....I wonder when OWS will camp on their doorstep?....Private Jets, Flying 'students', multiple international trips for Hillary, and Chelsea....Liberals have the nerve to furl their brow's when an SUV passes by, yet I am sure this carbon foot print is ok for them....

    Remember friends, the rules that a liberal progressive lays out for you never is meant to apply to themselves....

    I am sure that transportation is not the majority of these "travel" costs. These folks do not stay at Motel 6 and eat fast food - they tend to prefer the "presidential" suite at luxury establishments and dining at 5 star retaurants or well catered affairs.

    Typical Con strawman "Lberals say this..." when no liberal ever really says that except in your head. I've never heard a liberal say that people shouldn't be able to spend their own money on whatever they want.

    This is foundation money, not government money. It's not your money, it's not your outrage. Are you just bored that there's nothing worth the effort to bash Libs?

    Frankly, I don't have a strong opinion on Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea possibly misusing funds, as long as they're not government funds. The people who donate to this vanity project for the Clintons can either challenge it or stop donating. I'd never donate to anything they're involved with and if it keeps all of them away from the public purse, let them knock themselves out.

    Sure, when it's a liberals money we can't touch it, but when it is a capitalists money then all bets are off, go for it eh?....

    Again, the only people saying that are the Liberals in your head that don't really exist.

    This is true. It's also true about conservatives.
