Clinton Foundation givers

Posted By on Mon, Jan 4, 2010 at 11:56 AM

NPR follows up (better link) on the release of contributors to the Clinton Foundation and notes that this report is not just 2009 givers, but ALL donors to the foundation.

As mentioned before: This arises from the idea that disclosure was necessary to insure that there'd be no conflicts or appearance of same in activities by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and foundation contributors.

Fine.

But there's an ongoing interest in money given generally to presidential foundations -- Clintons and any other -- in the context of actions taken while president. Perhaps all should match the Clinton disclosure.

The Clinton list is on the foundation website. More than 3,200 pages. NPR is asking for crowd-sourcing of the list. It's organized according to gift, biggest at the top. The first Arkansas-related contributios kick in for the $1 million to $5 million category -- Alltel, Entergy, Jonesboro magnate Wallace Fowler, the Clinton Family Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation. Jackson T. Stephens registers between $500,000 and $1 million. Acxiom shows up at $250,000 to $500,000 (along with Denise Rich).

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
