Hillary Clinton just received $40,000 from Walmart executives

March 4, 2008

As the Morning News from Arkansas has reported the Presidential candidate Sen Hillary Clinton has received over $40,000 in campaign contributions from Walmart Corporation executives and their families in the last year alone. This sum is more than Walmart gave to New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani or Mike Huckabee. Let’s ponder that: one of the most greedy and reactionary corporations in the world, which grinds their employees into smithereens through unlawful labor practices and open discrimination against women and minorities has decided to give more to a democrat than the two most scariest Republican presidential candidates.

    for the record, Clinton did not receive the $40,000 from the Walmart corporation, as you claim, but rather from bigwigs who work there. I realize that this may seem like splitting hairs, but I do think it’s important to represent the information accurately. Correct information usually can stand on its own merits — when you misrepresent the facts, it seems as though you have an axe to grind…which I’d never accuse you of! (If I used emoticons there would be a smiley face. I don’t believe in them, so you have to trust that I am just poking you in honor of the good old days.)

    OK, perhaps Wal-mart executives giving Clinton $40,000 sounds even more ominous. The title has been changed.
