Wow, what an honor. And here we were ready to fork over half a million for the privilege of being in the presence of this corrupt, incompetent, greedy woman.
The liberal Center for American Progress (CAP) this year promised corporate donors a chance to meet Hillary Rodham Clinton in return for a $250,000 donation, documents obtained by The Hill show.
The meeting never happened, though Clinton spoke at the anniversary gala at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium that was cited on the solicitation.
“None of the patrons were able to meet with Secretary Clinton but our board and trustees did meet with her at the event,” said Andrea Purse, a CAP spokeswoman.
The documents ask prospective donors to contribute to CAP’s “Progressive Party,” which was held Oct. 24 to honor the group’s 10th anniversary. Donors who gave at least $250,000 — earning “patron” status — were told they would have a chance to meet Clinton.
“Patrons will also have the opportunity to meet the special guest speaker,” the document says, referring to the former secretary of State.
Remember this stuff when you hear about how the GOP is the party of the rich and corporate greed:
The prominence of CAP in Democratic politics has made the group a fundraising juggernaut.
The group reported holding more than $42 million in net assets on its 2012 tax form — 90 percent of which comes from individuals and foundations, according to CAP. Donors in 2013 included Apple, Bank of America, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Comcast/NBCUniversal, Eli Lilly, Facebook, GE, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Northrup Grumman, T-Mobile and Wal-Mart.
Wait, Wal-Mart, the evil bogeyman of the left? Funny, that.
