It’s good to be the King. Or an ex-king. Apparently, money allotted by the Former President’s Act (a program created largely after the time when a president’ dying in penury was actually a potential problem) has been used to pay salaries and benefits to Clinton aides.
But even as the Clintons got rich and grew their foundation into a $2 billion organization credited with major victories in the fights against childhood obesity and AIDS — while paying six-figure salaries to top aides — Bill Clinton continued drawing more cash from the Former President’s Act than any other ex-president, according to a POLITICO analysis. The analysis also found that Clinton’s representatives, between 2001, when the Clintons left the White House, and the end of this year, had requested allocations under the Act totaling $16 million. That’s more than any of the other living former presidents — Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush — requested during that span.
Well, isn’t that special?
