    Bill Clinton’s foundation doled out $2 million to a power company partly owned by a wealthy blond divorcée — who some say is the frequent visitor to his home nicknamed “Energizer.” The fit, blond mother of three, who lives just minutes from Bill and Hillary Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, Westchester, is the daughter of Joel Tauber, a millionaire donor to the Democratic Party.

    Another President Slick Willy rape victim, or was it consensual this time and he's just showing his appreciation?

    IF he is screwing her, what honestly does it matter to anyone else? Perhaps the Clinton's have an open relationship.

    I never got that about the whole BJ in the White House scandal that is always brought up. If there is any man who needs stress relief in the form of a release, it the POTUS.

    He wasn't impeached for a BJ, but for lying under oath. He was then disbarred.

    In the old days, journalists knew how to write ledes.

    To be fair I would hump a baseball glove before Hillary. I think Chelsea was the one time shot at making things look normal between them.

    Yes. That pesky perjury thing when he lied about sexually harassing Paula Jones.

    He sexually harassed Paula Jones, then committed perjury to keep her from having a fair day in court. And the Democratic party sold its soul to keep Clinton from paying the price.

    As much as everyone likes to hate on Bill Clinton (I'm assuming for rape allegations?), he seems rather nice and charming compared to Hillary.

    Might I suggest you adopt a more cynical worldview? It may help you understand politics.

    This OP is weird. The link is to the Wall Street Journal, but you seem to have cribbed some information from the NY Post—which relies on RadarOnline (?!) for the nickname.

    And, it's important to note why the Clinton Foundation gave the money.

    As the WSJ writes:

    Now, it is a bit sketchy that the Clinton foundation gave money to a private company and helped get it grants from the Energy Dept. and one-third of that company is owned by Bill Clinton's neighbor? Yes.

    So how do you think this would play in the press if Trumps wife was boinking the neighbor?

    Energy Pioneer Solutions is not a "power company."

    They work with utilities, homeowners, and businesses to reduce energy usage via insulation, scheduling software, etc. There are many, many other for-profit companies working to reduce fossil fuel usage, and combat climate change. And for funding they rely on a variety of private and public sources, including grants from both Governmental agencies as well as private foundations such as the Clinton Global Initiative.

    Just about every large charitable foundation works with for-profit organizations as part of their work. I would refer you to the Gates Foundation statement:

    Do you think the computers in the Gates Foundation offices run Windows, by ay chance? Was it a criminal conflict of interest for the Gates Foundation to pay money to buy software from a company in which the Founders have a financial interest?

    I'm sure you have your thoughts.
