WASHINGTON (AP) — More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money to the Clinton Foundation — either personally or through companies or groups. It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.

At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs. That’s according to a review of department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million.

The frequency of the overlaps fuels perceptions that donations were a key to gaining face time with Clinton.

    In other news, folks said that they would continue to support the corrupt and mendacious Mrs. Clinton as long as they keep getting their FREE STUFF.

    Otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the
    Mouth of labor the bread it has earned.
