In another sign that Hillary Clinton is perhaps not the best candidate to serve as leader of the free world, recent campaign finance reports made public Wednesday show that she blew millions of dollars of campaign contributions on party platters, luxury hotels and a revolving door of overpriced consultants.
The New York Times reported Friday that the reports appear “even to her most stalwart supporters and donors to be a road map of her political and management failings.”
More than $100,000 was spent on party platters leading up to the Iowa caucuses, with another $25,000 going toward rooms at the deluxe Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas.
Her communications director was paid $267,000 in January alone, with results that were somewhat less than spectacular.
A South Carolina firm received $800,000 to “turn out the black vote” in that state’s race.
Remember the South Carolina primary? The black vote turned out alright, voting by a wide margin for Obama.
Other expenses incurred in January include $11,000 for pizza and $1,200 for Dunkin’ Donuts runs—and that was just for Bill.
Under “incidental expenses,” the New York senator listed $40,000 for unflattering pantsuits, $600 for Kleenex, and $17,000 for hookers and blow.
Okay, okay. We made that last part up.
