2. Accepting Monies from Foreign Governments
The controversy of using shady donations in the Democratic party reached a fever pitch in 2015 when a conservative group claimed that the Hillary Clinton’s foundation took in millions in donations from foreign governments. What is being called an illegal slush fund by many conservatives is packed with donors and board members who have been caught doing shady dealings, have dodgy backgrounds, and some who have even been convicted. Knowing the type of people involved with that foundation would scare away an honest presidential candidate, but it appears Hillary Clinton has no trouble using the funds to finance her 2016 bid for the presidency. A super PAC called Correct the Record is basically the response team that researches the opposition for the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential run. The organization was reported to the Federal Election Committee for violating campaign finance law. In the complaint, the group was accused of providing illegal contributions to the Clinton 2016 campaign. According to the regulations of the FEC, super PACs are not allowed by law to make donations to candidates. The Clinton team is banking on the fact that they have bent the rules and want to benefit by using the shady funds without repercussion. Mrs. Clinton has gone on the record to say that she cannot afford to successfully run her campaign without tapping into the big money of the super PAC. As of today, the the Clinton campaign will not respond to questions about this FEC complaint.
3. Scoring Millions from Qatar and From Corrupt FIFA Soccer Organization Donations
It is one thing to have an organization donate money towards a candidate they support, but it is another to accept those funds knowing they are coming from a source with a questionable background. The FIFA Soccer Organization has been knee deep in controversy this past year, and yet they have sent boatloads of cash to the Clinton campaign without issue. The governing body of the soccer organization already has contributed up to $100,000 on numerous occasions already to Mrs. Clinton. Even worse, the money that the Clinton campaign is spending to get into the White House has also come from the Qatar committee, to the tune of $500,000 and up to $5 million in a previous year. If Hillary Clinton wants to distance herself from the troubles of the organizations that are funding her campaign, refunding the money would go a long way in showing her real character. To date, no funds have been returned or refunded.
