And you thought Democrats condoning the sale of baby parts was scandalous! That’s nothing compared to how Democrats planned to reward top donors.
Recall that Obama gave billions of dollars in contracts to “green energy,” most of whom are now defunct. But it gets worse, as we know that various appointments were made as part of payback to reward top donors.
According to The Daily Caller,
President Obama has been criticized for appointing dozens of top fundraisers — called “bundlers” in the political fundraising realm — to ambassadorships and other cushy federal positions.
The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political action committees.
It’s no surprise these rewards have been given out. And in defense of Democrats, crooked Republicans have done the same. But Obama claimed he would put an end to this, and certainly one would think Hillary Clinton would try to be above reproach, given her history.
This is far from the case, as Clinton is one of the worst criminals in American history.

According to the Daily Caller’s analysis, the proposed appointments provide more evidence that the DNC favored Clinton over her former primary challenger, Bernie Sanders. As it turns out, most of the donors listed on the spreadsheet gave to Clinton’s campaign. None gave to Sanders.
Talk about verifying what both Trump and Sanders have claimed about crooked Hillary Clinton.
The article continues,
It is unclear from the DNC spreadsheet if any of the people on the list made specific requests for federal appointments.
But one tip-off that the document is detailing a quid pro quo is an entry next to the name of David Shapira, the executive chairman of grocery store chain Giant Eagle, Inc.
“USPS” — a likely reference to the U.S. Postal Service — is entered on the spreadsheet.
President Obama nominated Shapira for a position on the USPS’ board of governors last year but the retail executive did not take the position because congressional Republicans held up his nomination.
Specific requests?! Talk about carving up the body politic and serving it on a platter.
You can bet there is a system in place that explains what you get for what you gave. Ambassadorships, high-level appointments where it benefits donors’ companies, and so on.
With politicians, some is up for grabs. With the Clintons, it’s all up for grabs.
