Hillary Clinton is generously paying herself to run for the presidency with money from her campaign. She paid herself $254,447 since the launch of her campaign less than a year ago.
Hillary is the only candidate paying herself out of campaign donations but she doesn’t want to end up in poverty again. It’s not illegal like so many of her other activities.
She and Bill were “dead broke” when they left the White House. Hopefully this quarter million dollars will keep her solvent. Together, they only have about a hundred and ten million dollars. How ever do they do all they do on such a pittance?
She sounded like she was going to cry when she recalled how dead broke she was.
Hillary can always give speeches to corporations currying favor to keep her out of the poor house. Her corporate sponsors pay her well.
