The Clinton Foundation Has Spent $50M On Travel

From the New York Post:

Bill Clinton foundation has spent more than $50M on travel expenses

By GEOFF EARLE | August 20, 2013

WASHINGTON — Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofit’s tax forms reveal.

The spending includes $4.2 million in 2011 for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are now attached); $730,000 for the Clinton Global Health Initiative; and $7.2 million for the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).

Businessman and Republican New York City mayoral candidate John Catsimatidis has lent aircraft to Clinton and to the foundation multiple times for travel, including Clinton’s recent trip to Africa with daughter Chelsea.

Clinton sometimes uses Catsimatidis’ Boeing 727, while opting on other trips to use a smaller Gulfstream jet.

Well, one of the most important things his foundation does is remind of the need to reduce our carbon footprint.

“I don’t think it’s necessarily their go-to plane, because the 727 is a pretty big plane. It all depends where they’re going and what they’re doing,” said a Catsimatidis spokesman.

Sometimes Clinton uses the plane at a discount rate for the foundation, and sometimes Catsimatidis donates the flight time to the charitable foundation, which has a variety of programs to improve global health.

So how much flying do you have to do to rack up $50 million dollars at a discounted rate or even for free in just ten years? (And this is based on what they are reporting on their tax forms.)

But, again, the Clintons and their various foundations never stop chiding us about the need to reduce carbon emissions. It’s almost as if they are hypocrites.
