Major Scandal Brewing Among Clinton Associates, Former DNC Official
2:15 PM, Aug 9, 2011 • By MARK HEMINGWAY
A major scandal amoung influential Democrats just broke, and so far it appears to be flying under the radar. Stephen Losey at Federal Times has the scoop.
In a nutshell: Alan Kessler, the former finance vice chair of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's finance chair during her 2008 campaign, resigned suddenly from his position on the USPS' Board of Governors last month. Turns out, he was pressuring postal officials to back off of a land deal that would have cost his friend, Douglas Band -- who is Bill Clinton's lawyer, helps run the Clinton Foundation and helped found the Clinton Global Initiative -- millions of dollars.
Be sure and read Losey's whole story for even more details. So far the scandal doesn't seem to touch either of the Clintons, or anyone in Congress -- but it certainly deserves more scrutiny.
