Clinton Foundation bucks

Posted By on Wed, Nov 19, 2008 at 12:06 PM

The Clinton Foundation raised $124 million in 2007 and spent $140 million, according to its annual filing with the IRS. You can peruse the whole thing here. Bruce Lindsey is the top employee, at $240,000 per.

You won't find individual contributors (though the rising president might be interested in whether the contributors present potential conflicts with a future secretary of state). The cash position of $90 million, I'm told, overstates the organization's situation. A good bit of that is committed to AIDS-fighting drugs. (But looks to me like there still should be some leeway for a little railroad bridge renovation.)

UPDATE: A Clinton Foundation spokesman says all the organization's excess cash comes in the form of grants for specific programs and that there's little or no discretionary money in the reserve for the long-promised renovation of the rusting Rock Island bridge. But, he adds, the Foundation has raised $5 million for this cause and continues to seek other sources to complete the $10 million necessary.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
