Hillary Clinton Offsets Native Energy
Back in February 2008, the Clinton campaign stiffed a New Hampshire doctor on the rent.
Only after the doc went public, did the $500 check arrive in the mail--which the doc promptly mailed right back out as a contribution to the Obama campaign.
Spare change when compared to the $11,834 debt owed to Native Energy, a firm that provides "carbon offsets for people and the planet".
But this debt was much more than money owed.
It was a renege on a commitment.
On Earth Day 2007, Hillary Clinton announced her campaign would go "carbon-neutral". Native Energy received $20,000 to "balance out the emissions produced by its offices and travel".
Around Valentine's Day, when the former First Lady went to the cupboard to get her barking dogs a bone, the remaining biscuits were doled out by priority...and Native Energy found themselves wanting, listed somewhere between the Good Doctor and the low end of the financial stick.
Although the campaign indicates a $6338.52 payment was made to Native Energy--"catching the campaign up through January"--makes me wonder how quickly "going green" would be shafted under a Clinton presidency should the books fall...
...out of the black.
