Sen. Hillary Clinton Failed to Reveal 'Family Charity'

YEAH RIGHT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess it is quite difficult
to remember sheltering 5 million of your income into your own
charitable foundation. She couldn't remember the Rose Law Firms account
books being in her office, she couldn't remember how Craig Livingstone
got hired, it must be adeficiency in her memory popping up.

Sen. Hillary Rodham
Clinton failed to list on annual Senate financial disclosure forms the
family charity she operates with former president Bill Clinton, The
Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

Sen. Clinton, a Democratic
presidential contender, has been an officer in the family foundation
since it was established in 2001, but none of her ethics reports since
then have disclosed that fact as required by congressional ethics
rules, the newspaper said.

The foundation has enabled the Clinton's
to write off more than $5 million from their taxable income since 2001,
while dispensing $1.25 million in charitable contributions over that
period, the newspaper reported.

The newspaper said Clinton's
office immediately amended her Senate ethics reports to add that
information late Monday after receiving inquiries from The Washington

"The details of the Clintons' charitable family
foundation and Senator Clinton's role in it have always been publicly
available but, in an oversight that leaders of both parties have made,
it was inadvertently omitted from her Senate filing, which has been
corrected," Clinton's spokesman PhilippeReines told the newspaper.

other high-profile politicians have come under scrutiny for omitting
family foundations from their financial disclosure reports, including
former Senate majority leader BillFrist and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. They amended their disclosures, the Post said.
