The massive bouts of corruption that have been witnessed within the democratic party in the last year have given the nation a revealing look into the behavior of the doomed organization.
Hillary Clinton often comes to mind when you begin pondering the depths of depravity in D.C. Not only has Clinton been implicated in a number of schemes that backfired in her quest to take the White House, but her time as Secretary of State has been tainted in disclosures from whistleblower website Wikileaks in the form of discovered emails that point to a long history of backdoor bombshells.
Not the least of which involved Hillary’s use of the Clinton Foundation coffers as a way for foreign leaders to earn a “golden ticket” with the then-head of the State Department. Those seeking an audience with Clinton would often find themselves coaxed into making hefty donations to the foundation, run by Bill, Hillary, and daughter Chelsea, before actually receiving the attention that they sought.
As it turns out, this pay-to-play scheme isn’t unique to Hillary Clinton and her foundation at all, with one notorious democratic mayor installing a similar program in the embattled city of Chicago.
“After reviewing more than 500 contributions made to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel of at least $5,000 since July 2015, the Tribune reports today that nearly 70% of them came from people who have received, or are seeking, lucrative contracts with City Hall. Frankly, we are ‘shocked.’“‘As Mayor Rahm Emanuel ramps up his campaign fundraising toward a possible third term, he continues to rely on donors who have received City Hall benefits, ranging from contracts and zoning approvals to appointments and personal endorsements from the mayor, the Chicago Tribune has found.’
“‘With the February 2019 mayoral election still a year and a half away, Emanuel has collected $3.1 million in high-dollar contributions. And more than $2.1 million of it — nearly 70 percent — has come from 83 donors who have benefited from actions at City Hall.’
“‘Among the contributors: law firms seeking approval for their clients’ projects or lucrative bond business for themselves, developers needing City Hall permission to build here, an events promoter negotiating the financial details of a major music festival and restaurateurs wanting coveted space at Chicago’s airports.’
This sort of corruption has been seen time and again within the democratic party, who often attempt to shroud their nefarious ways through a charade of compassion for fringe groups in American society.
The current obsession with the plight of transgendered Americans comes to mind. While Barack Obama was inexplicably showing signs of obsessive empathy toward this minuscule, quiet portion of the nation, Rahm Emannuel and Hillary Clinton were simultaneously conducting such horrifically corrupt actions from their seats of power. This game of public perception was likely intended to mask the true nature of the democratic desperation to somehow maintain some semblance of political power in an overtly conservative nation.
