Sounds like the Frau Hillary is going after the white trash vote...:D

Hillary Takes Jerry Springer money, Shuns Wal-Mart

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton gathered checks from Hollywood friends, John Kerry's wife and even a former Republican congressman, but records filed Friday show she returned cash from an even older ally - Wal-Mart.

Senate records made public Friday detail how Clinton, D-N.Y., raised a whopping $6 million in the last three months of 2005, bringing her campaign cash to $17 million going into her re-election run, in which she has yet to face organized opposition.

Some $1,500 of that money came from Amo Houghton Jr., the former Republican congressman who retired in 2004. Houghton, an heir to the Corning glass company in upstate New York, did not immediately return a call for comment.

The junior senator from New York is also a potential presidential candidate in 2008. She took in plenty of donations from box office stars and political heavyweights, according to paperwork filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., gave Clinton $2,100. John Kerry, who lost the 2004 presidential race, is also considered a presidential prospect in 2008.

Clinton returned $5,000 to the political action committee of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., a company with long ties to the Clintons dating back to their days in Arkansas, where Wal-Mart is headquartered.

Clinton campaign spokeswoman Ann Lewis said the money was returned "because of serious differences with current company practices."

The senator served on the Wal-Mart board from 1986 to 1992, and was close with the Walton family that created the nation's largest retailer.

But the senator signaled a new stance on the company's business practices in a speech last week, when she told the U.S. Conference of Mayors that the company should provide better worker benefits.

"Cities and states are saying we can't keep holding the bag here," Clinton told the conference, citing a new Maryland law requiring Wal-Mart to spend 8 percent of payroll in health benefits or contribute to insurance plans.

Other donors to Clinton include former Sept. 11 commission member Richard Ben-Veniste, who gave her $1,000 in November. Actress Reese Witherspoon contributed $1,000, and talk show host Jerry Springer donated $4,200.

Actor Danny DeVito gave $1,000, and actress Morgan Fairchild gave $1,500. Edie Falco of "The Sopranos" gave $1,000, and Jessica Seinfeld - comedian Jerry Seinfeld's wife - gave $4,200.

The papers also showed what it costs a candidate to raise $6 million in three months. One company alone was paid more than $461,000 to conduct direct mail appeals for Clinton.

If we're lucky he'll remind us how many purple hearts he won.

Hmmm, I can see it now, Hillary campaigning for President by going on his show to discover who her real father is.:D

Eva's part of the elite; she's above the law and does not have to worry about how it applies to her.:)

She was actually on the board for Wal Mart as late as 92 and now has "serious differences with current company practices"? I think she a principled woman, and that principle is getting elected.:rolleyes:

I think it's kind of wierd to return campaign money because of "serious differences with current company practices." That implies that you will be beholden to any and every donor. It seems more ethical to say "This is what I stand for, donate money if you want someone with my beliefs to win." If you openly disagree with your donors, that's their problem.

Reichmarshall Hillary is no different from any other Demosocialist bottomfeeding politician - she hates citizen gun owners, but LOOOOOOOOOOOVES having government controlled polezi that are armed to the teeth.

The Clinton's will dump anyone, walk over anyone, stab anyone in the back, in order to get where they want to go -- that is to get money and power. No loyalty, no principles, no friendships will be allowed to get in the way.

You left wing types out there need to come to grips with this, because it means that Hillary will turn on the left if she has to to get what she wants. She will use you as long as you are useful, but will dump you fast if that is what she thinks she needs to do.

ANYONE, right or left or middle, that TRUSTS HRC is a fool.

You Hillary-Bashers have won me over with your insight.
So, can you tell me where to send my money for the Tom Delay defense fund? I figure its my first step in becoming a Republican (the party of faith and morals).
Thanks guys,

David

Since when did stating the facts become "bashing?" Oh, I forgot - we're using the Demosocialist dictionary now...:barf:

David --

I am just saying DON'T TRUST HILLARY!!:eek:

You don't have to become a Republican (I am not), but for goodness sake don't get sucked into The Hillary Zone! Work and vote for someone else on the left as your candidate if that is where you feel most comfortable.
