The New Republic, available only to subscribers, has a new report about the activities of Doug Band
, a former key adviser to Bill Clinton's philanthropic activities post-presidency. The article, based on this summary in the Chronicle of Philanthropy,
suggests that Band used his Clinton association to develop his private business.
Band has been gone from the Clinton Foundatio
n since 2011. It has been noted
that his departure was coincidental with the rise of Chelsea Clinton
to a leadership role in the organization.
The story is creating a lot of buzz.
Those who don't like the Clintons naturally promote it as a dangerous skeleton for a 2016 campaign by Hillary Clinton.
