Oh. I thought it reflected that, as if in an second thought interjection. Live and learn.

From the article....

"it may not currently be possible to determine if Ayco actually donated Fiorina's money to Planned Parenthood."

Then they go on to say that she should not be associated with the group that donates to planned parenthood.
Sounds smeary to me.


It's only a smear if it's not true. I suggest reading the full Daily Beast piece. Sounds like her campaign is not ready for prime time.

who knows, maybe it was donated to planned parenthood global and went to the congo...
that would be rather amusing also really.




And while that may be true, and it may not currently be possible to determine if Ayco actually donated Fiorina's money to Planned Parenthood


wonder if this is similar to how it can't be determined that any gov't funds are being used for abortions by planned parenthood, or how it can't be determined that anyones particular insurance premiums are going to someone's elses abortions.
since the conservative camps are so quick to jump on the idea that since it can't be shown that they aren't, well we should assume that they are in those cases, then we by the same logic should also assume that she is donating to planned parenthood.

Maybe her money only went to support free condoms.

And Carson worked on fetal tissue, but of course he says abortion's evil too. Republicans as so hypocritical it should be illegal to vote for them.

So what's the beef ?

Republicans are suppose to be for abortion and planned parenthood says the left.

Then they get blasted for doing what the LEFT wants them to do.

There's a link in the article that goes to the Daily Beast... I used this article because I know a lot of people don't like giving the Daily Beast hits... I try to do that with with most of my icky progressive, socialist, commie, anti-christian, family hating, race-baiting, politically correct sources.

I'm a thoughtful bitch.


LMAO shut up....that made me laugh

Im going to look into this and see how deep it goes, if its true , going to spread this all around

Ive liked Fiorina , liked her message liked her passion.........

If this is true bam bam shes out! just like Trump in my book.........

Please lord smiling baby jesus, from his manger, lift Rand Paul up to position to lead.........


Dude she supported universal health care.

That pops up like a nuke going off.

Fiorina is a RINO like Trump.

Carly Fiorina donated to Hillary Clinton?



Indeed it looks like she did. Here’s the lowdown from Jeffrey Lord:

The Federal Election Commission records that Ms. Fiorina was a donor to the Technology Network (Technet) Federal PAC. The FEC documents that Technet’s “In Kind Contributions”—represented by the provision of goods or services in lieu of actual capital—included nine separate donations to Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign, as well as one contribution to her presidential campaign in 2007.

Well, so has Donald Trump! He’s given actual donations to Hillary Clinton, you might say. And it would be true.

So the part of my point that I left off to see where the thread would go, is this... as others have mentioned, these donor trusts aren't really indicative of anything. For some people it's just a simple way to enjoy huge tax write offs. Some people care where their money goes, others don't.

Clearly someone running for office should be a bit more careful but my distaste for ALL GOP candidates aside, intent is not at play at here and just because a billionaire dumps money into a donor trust it doesn't mean that they support it, obviously Fiorina doesn't support PP.

Conversely, recipients of such donations aren't necessarily backed or endorsed by any specific person.

Well, part of the issue from the original Daily Beast article as I see it is that she claimed she was "chairman of the Fiorina Foundation" when in fact no such entity existed. She just dumped the money into a donor trust and her campaign was not prepared to deal with any questions on the subject. We know money from that trust went to planned parenthood but we don't know specifically where HER money went because she and her campaign won't say. Considering her main claim to fame is her financial and business expertise this really doesn't look very good that she didn't even have her s**t together on this.
