Bill Clinton takes $500k from charity to show up and RECEIVE an award

[LibertyUnyielding Ed. – Whatever else you may think of income disparity, it’s clear that the Clintons’ wealth is not based on free-market prowess.  Nota bene: the value exchange in this event was based on politics, the only arena in which Bill Clinton has value.  Learn it, grasshoppers.  Politics distorts monetary value like nothing else on earth.  Never hand anything over to politics to be administered more “fairly.”  Emphases original and added.]

The former president of the United States agreed to accept a lifetime achievement award at the June 2014 event after Ms. Nemcova offered a $500,000 contribution to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
