Undisclosed Revenue Is Problematic For Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Ambitions

Reports that the Clinton Foundation did not disclose and addition $26 million dollars of revenue are adding fuel to the fire that the Foundation hasn’t operated in the most ethical manner. The New York Times’ Nick Confessore said:

NICK CONFESSORE: Well, the problem here Jose is that they keep being sloppy about this. They sign this agreement and it seems like every week there is a new example of them saying whoops, we actually made a mistake, here’s some more income, here’s some more grants, here’s some more fundraising. So if it’s within the letter of the agreement or not, they keep changing the rules a bit and saying here’s more money, here’s more money. At best it looks very sloppy. It looks like they weren’t taking very seriously the obligations they imposed on themselves back in 2008.

On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski had harsh words for the Clintons’ and their fondness of money:

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I’m not sure either. But when you just look at the Clintons and some of the gaffes involving money, they talk about it as if, you know, dead broke or I got to pay the bills. Those things I would say you could go into e-mail-gate and all these other things, those things rub people the wrong way.

Another persistent problem for Hillary Clinton’s campaign is the bubble in which it operates. On Inside Politics the Associated Press’ Julie Pace pointed out:

JULIA PACE: I was with Hillary in Iowa this week. The campaign is saying they’re doing small events putting her in settings where she can have a conversation. But I think it’s important for the public to understand what these conversations are. These are with pre-selected, pre-screened supporters mainly. I was at a conversation she was having with small business owners, everyone around the table very supportive of her agenda.
