I found Dinocrat’s post when I googled for more information on this bit of Hillary’s pre-history. I first heard it mentioned on Larry Elder . In passing, he revealed ol’ Hill’s long and lucrative relationship with Sam Walton back in her Arkansas days.
Going to Elder’s website revealed a full article from the Washington Times, dated February 13th —
Mrs. Clinton served on Wal-Mart’s board of directors for six years when her husband was governor of Arkansas. The Rose Law Firm, where she was a partner, handled many of the Arkansas-based company’s legal affairs.
She had kind words for Wal-Mart as recently as 2004, when she told an audience at the convention of the National Retail Federation that her time on the board “was a great experience in every respect.”
Throughout the 1980s, both Bill and Hillary Clinton nurtured relationships with Mr. Walton, who was a conservative Republican and by far Arkansas’ most influential businessman.
The Clintons also benefited financially from Wal-Mart. Mrs. Clinton was paid $18,000 each year she served on the board, plus $1,500 for each meeting she attended.
By 1993, she had accumulated at least $100,000 in Wal-Mart stock, according to Mr. Clinton’s federal financial disclosure that year. The Clintons also flew free on Wal-Mart corporate planes 14 times in 1990 and 1991 in preparation for Mr. Clinton’s 1992 presidential bid. [my emphasis]
Oh, the sacrifice of public servants Bill and Hillary Clinton. Each new revelation merely cements their legacy.
Meanwhile, Dinocrat says he’s purchased a most interesting movie (surely X-rated by the DNC?):
We just bought from Amazon a copy of “Sam Walton: Bargain Billionaire,” a 1987 A&E documentary featuring Sam Walton and Hillary Clinton.
Dinocrat says Hillary and Sam Walton are the only credited cast members in this epic film.
Personally, I can’t wait to read his review. When he posts it, we’ll give a link.
Don’t you think the RNC should buy copies — many, many copies? But they wont. Only Dems think to do things like that. Republicans sit around working out supply-side theories and dreaming of small government while their chief relentessly enlarges it behind their back.
