    Meanwhile, I see no indication you actually read the Politifact article. If you did, you'd understand why merely reading the tax filings does not give you an accurate picture of how much the Clinton Foundation spends on programs.

    Imagine if the book hadn't come out, doubtful any of this would be known. There always seems to be something up with the Clintons....some kind of questionable activity ever since they've been on the national scene.

    Uh, okay....

    You're mixing apples and oranges here. Allegations of inappropriate donations are different than claims that the Clinton Foundation is only allocation 10-15% of its annual revenues to programs.

    The tax forms in question are public, and easy for anyone to get. There is no doubt that someone would look at it, much as I'm sure they are poring over the Foundation's annual reports, and that reporters will look into other candidate's funding sources, SuperPACs, business dealings and so forth. Eventually, this particular item would be discussed.


    There always seems to be something up with the Clintons....some kind of questionable activity ever since they've been on the national scene.
    *shrug* You can say similar things about almost any candidate today. E.g. the New York Times has already looked at Jeb Bush's business practices; Rubio is already drawing a little notice for the links between his brand-new SuperPAC and the Conservative Solutions PAC.

    Sadly, unless someone runs who doesn't take any donations whatsoever, every candidate is going to have questions about their funding.

    Perhaps, but it's not easy to believe when he refused to fully disclose his taxes as his opponent did.

    No.

    They may NOT spend on themselves, beyond managerial salaries or usual costs associated with raising donations.

    Where the corruption comes in is usually with "expenses" which, in the US can mean anything, a second or third home for the Clintons perhaps.
