You paid for Hillary’s server — because the Clintons just can’t stop blurring lines

Congratulations, Joe and Jane Taxpayer: It turns out you covered the costs of setting up that home-brewed e-mail server Hillary Clinton used to evade the Freedom of Information laws while mishandling classified information.

And that was just part of Thursday’s fresh news on the Clintons’ relentless comingling of the public’s business with their own.

Thanks to a 1950s law, ex-presidents get public support for whatever office they set up in retirement. Bill Clinton — surprise surprise surprise — took this as license to bill the taxpayers for staffers and expenses tied to the Clinton Foundation (and an associated business) — including the tech involved in satisfying Hillary’s demand to keep her communications “private,” in defiance of federal rules.

Credit Politico for the investigation that exposed Bill’s exploitation of a loosely written law to fund the very staff and office stock “now at the center of e-mail and cash-for-access scandals dogging Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.”
