The Clinton Foundation said Thursday it had discovered $12-26 million worth of previously-undisclosed contributions, including some from foreign entities.
The money was received in exchange for speeches by the three Clintons, and was accidentally counted as “revenue” rather than donations. Via the Washington Post:
The paid appearances included speeches by former president Bill Clinton to the Nigerian ThisDay newspaper group for at least $500,000 and to the Beijing Huaduo Enterprise Consulting Company Ltd., an investment holding company that specializes in the natural gas market, for at least $250,000. Citibank paid at least $250,000 for a speech by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The contributions were disclosed on the Foundation’s website Thursday night.
Wow! I better schedule a meeting with my tax preparer, I didn’t know I had so many options for picking income and revising my taxes. I guess everyone who paid for a speech from the Clintons will probably have to revise their taxes to show the payments as expenses rather than contributions, bummer.
Oh, and a side thought, when Hillary’s presidential terms end, she won’t need a library, she can use the little annex off Bill’s office at his library to keep the minuscule records that will be available from her administration.
