Hillary Wants 'Unaccountable Money' Out of Politics
“We need to fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all, even if that takes a constitutional amendment,” Hillary Clinton boldly declared. And here we thought the Constitution was out of favor on the Left. Congress tried to reform campaign financing, but it ended up being little more than an incumbent protection act, and the Supreme Court struck down key portions in its Citizens United decision. Besides, Hillary only wants to change the rules after she raises $2.5 billion for her run. Furthermore, if Hillary is so concerned about being “unaccountable,” maybe she shouldn’t have run a private email server and then deleted all her “personal” emails. Or maybe she should allow her social media following to grow organically, instead of filling the ranks with fake followers. Just 44% of her Twitter followers are real, and her Facebook page has more likes from people in Baghdad than in any U.S. city. Is anybody less qualified to talk about dysfunctional politics and unaccountable money than Hillary Clinton?
