Hillary And Bill Clinton : State Fair : New York

The Clintons have to have been today a little stung in a seemingly unlikely attack ........ from The New York Times ......... A paper often regarded as possibly Clinton supporting and certainly pretty Liberal ........ The paper makes allegations about conflicts of interest and cronyism at The Clinton Foundation ........ it sounds rather like the stuff of ordinary American politics to me ........ I have to say the whole system always seems somewhat open to abuse ........ where millions of dollars are raised to support a given candidate from private individuals and corporations ....... who apparently want nothing for their money ? ....... The whole thing always strikes me as inherently riddled with potential and actual conflicts of interest.

"For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and threatened by conflicts of interest. It ran multimillion-dollar deficits for several years, despite vast amounts of money flowing in."

I read this above from the New York Times described as the killer quote in The Telegraph.............

Like I say isn't that just describing the US political system......? I don't know maybe there is more to this than I am initially seeing. But it hardly seems likely that this is a killer blow to The Clintons and Hillary's potential Presidential run in particular......... Well it does not seem to be that way to me at least ........... I can't help thinking the Clintons have survived much rougher seas than this.

I shot this image at The New York State Fair for The Atlantic Magazine ........ while Hilary Clinton was a New York Senator thought to be positioning herself for a Presidential run last time round :-)))))))))))
