Clinton Campaign Steals From Its Small Donors

Saturday, September 17, AD 2016

 

 

Once one understands that Hillary Clinton is a transparent crook, this is not surprising:

 

An elderly woman who donated to the Hillary Clinton campaign says she was charged multiple times after she stipulated she would only be making a one-time donation, according to a report from the New York Observer.*

Carol Mahre, an 81-year-old grandmother from Minnesota who has voted Democratic since Eisenhower’s re-election in 1956, said she wanted to make a one-time donation of $25 to Clinton’s campaign. But when she received her U.S. Bank statement, she noticed that multiple charges of $25 (and one for $19) were made to her account from the Clinton campaign.

Mahre said she wanted to make only a one-time donation. Her son, Roger, agreed to help her get her money back, as she could not afford the multiple donations.

“It took me at least 40 to 50 phone calls to the campaign office before I finally got ahold of someone,” Roger told NBC affiliate Kare11, which first investigated Mahre’s story. “After I got a campaign worker on the phone, she said they would stop making the charges.”

But the charges didn’t stop. Roger said his mother is “very good with the Internet,” and doesn’t believe she would have mistakenly signed up for recurring donations. But even if she had, why would the recurring donations change from $25 to $19? Why would the charges come on the same day or in the same month instead of monthly? . . .

Observer reporter Liz Crokin spoke to a Wells Fargo employee who works in the fraud department to figure out what was going on.

“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” the employee, who asked to remain anonymous, told Crokin. The source added that they had not received any calls about the Trump campaign and donations.

The source said this has been going on since the spring, and that the campaign stops after it has taken a little less than $100 from a one-time donor.

“We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” the source said. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they’ll stop the charges just below $100. We’ll see her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.”

  • James Carville was saying something about $50 dollar bills, trailer parks and white trash skanks, wasn’t he?

  • Barack had a worm named after him.

    Hillary also, should have a distinguished amoeba, or parasite named after her as well.
    She is a puss sucking spineless virus that is breeding other pathogen’s that seek to gain control of your money.

    We must have a strong antidote come November. One that will, at least, slow down the infection.

  • Aesop: “A liar will not be believed, even when she speaks the truth.”
    .
    Let’s take a step back and calmly think this through.
    .
    If the Trump campaign engaged in such crimes, it would be broadcast 24/7 on all media, democrat campaign outlets; and FBI Director Comey would personally arrive at Trump Tower and, with 10,000 cameras and microphones whirring, take away in handcuffs Donald Trump. .

  • Amici,

    Is this not why Robin Hood stole from the goverment of Nottingham to return to the poor what that government had wrongfully taken? Hillary Rodham Clinton is a thief, a liar and a murderess.

  • I think it does not violate Christian charity to refer to the Clintons as vile, lying, corrupt agents of evil. Politics has been their means to achieve power and wealth and damn anyone who stands in their way.

  • Why not a class action suit against the Clinton Campaign?

  • One could certainly be undertaken if the allegations in the news report are accurate.

  • Mac, I defer to your lawyerly expertise on the civil lawsuit. This is fraud. It would be prosecuted pursuant to Federal mail fraud statutes. Of course, the regime’s Justice Department is in the tank for Clinton so never happen.

  • A class action suit T.Shaw can operate under any statute or fact pattern, so a class action based upon mail fraud would certainly be possible. A RICO suit might also be viable.

  • “Why not a class action suit against the Clinton campaign?”-Michael Dowd

    Hold on.
    I know I’m slow on the up-take, but these are Clinton supporters were speaking of.
    Hillary Clinton supporters.
    They are not likely to file a protest against their beloved Medusa. They will buy the BS that it was the fault of the internet, the site,the “glitch” in the system…and on and on.

    A class action lawsuit by these individuals who rank animals rights above the sanctity of human life will not file a suit.
    They are zombies…sorry grandma, but the truth can hurt.

  • Question Don on the class action suit requirements. In the case at issue presumably all the complainants did or could be reimbursed by the credit card company, so how could they bring a lawsuit against the Hillary campaign? No damages, no lawsuit?

  • Phillip, we don’t care about the outcome of the class action suit. The point is what it could do to Hillary as a negative advertising campaign. I can see it now. Trump supporters come to the aid of Democrats bilked by Hillary. And so forth.

  • Michael.
    Plaintiffs. Who are the plaintiffs?
    Fraud must have a party that is complaining..I guess. I am not educated in these matters, but my guess is that there must be a party that feels wronged. (?)

  • I would assume that some of the people ripped off would be willing to serve as the initial plaintiffs in a class action suit.

  • Just because they were reimbursed does not mean they have not been damaged. Also if a class action suit were filed, I assume that some individuals who had not taken the steps to be compensated by the issuing card company would be located. Quite a few people probably do not pay close attention to their credit card bills and some of them would be ripped off Clinton donors.

  • The entire platform and world view of the modern Democratic Party is a giant fraud, the primary victims of which are the adherents themselves.

  • Loyalty to a Hitler lead many to do unspeakable acts.

    Hillary has that kind of loyalty I presume.

  • Philip , When I read your “Medusa” comment, I immediately thought of Medea. But, you’re correct. Serpent-tressed Medusa is far more appropriate. Mainly because Medea was intelligent, Hillary is not. Although, I have absolutely no doubt that Hillary would murder her children.

  • Of course as of 3:00 PM Sunday, the democrat campaign propaganda media has not reported one syllable on the crime. If it had been Trump, it would be 24/7, 60 minutes an hour, the top propaganda meme.

  • T Shaw.
    Yes indeed. Medusa. She looks at her victims and turns them into stone… especially the hearts of her prey…..the dems. She then owns them, lock stock and barrel.

    Evil snake monster…
    But alas…I must pray for her.

    In regards to your last comment.
    Absolutely right!
    Media center, had it been Trump, would be running this every chance they have.
    Bastards.

As the father of an autistic son who my wife and I love more than our lives, and who we will be caring for during the rest of our lives, I have one word to describe the activities of the Service Employees International Union as detailed in the following story from the Washington Examiner:  Despicable.

 

If you’re a parent who accepts Medicaid payments from the State of Michigan to help support your mentally-disabled adult children,  you qualify as a state employee for the purposes of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). They can now claim and receive a portion of your Medicaid in the form of union dues.

 

Robert and Patricia Haynes live in Michigan with their two adult children, who have cerebral palsy. The state government provides the family with insurance through Medicaid, but also treats them as caregivers. For the SEIU, this makes them public employees and thus members of the union, which receives $30 out of the family’s monthly Medicaid subsidy. The Michigan Quality Community Care Council (MQC3) deducts union dues on behalf of SEIU.

  • Michigan is among the worst of the progressivist, nannyish, union-dominated states. You may recall that some union, it may have been the SEIU, actuallly had a law passed allowing them to take money from home-based child-care providers here. (Nation-wide conservative outrage and the influx of Republicans in the ’10 elections has rendered the law nugatory, but it seems to be on the books still.) Unions are so entrenched here that new Republican majories in both houses and a Rep. Gov. haven’t made a bit of difference. (This, by the way, is what will happen nationally with a Romney victory–it will be meaningless.) Realize also that state employee unions use involunntarily collected funds from state-paid employees to lobby for increased state-employee pay so that they may collect more lobbying funds to lobby etc.

  • I despise unions, also, Donald. My story is entirely different than yours, however. When I got out of the US Submarine Service, I went to work at a commercial pressurized water reactor as a union I&C technician. One incident in particular convinced me to get out of the union. Like all light water reactors, we had an acoustical monitoring system used to detect loose parts in the reactor coolant system during operation at power. Even very small loose parts (tiny nylon springs, almost mircoscopic washers, etc.) can be dangerous because if they get past the debris strainers at the bottom of the fuel assembly rods, they can impact the soft zircalloy metal that keeps the fuel pins intact. After repeated vibrations, the zircalloy can undergo what’s called debris fretting, and the fuel pins could be exposed to the reactor coolant. Of course that would result in the release of fission products directly into the reactor coolant system, and that is not a good thing. The US NRC takes a very dim view of failed fuel elements, because that means that the first barrier to fission product release [ (1) fuel rod, (2) reactor coolant piping, and (3) reactor containment ] has been degraded. Usually when that happens, adjacent control rods have to be inserted to suppress neutron flux in the area so that the fissions in the affected fuel rod will be stopped, but that messes up thermal neutron flux profile across the core, and a whole set of other effects happen. Sometimes a complete shutdown is required and the defective fuel assembly has to be removed. That costs a million dollars a day to do, and it is by no means a quick process.

    So what does that all have to do with unions? When, as an I&C technician, I was responsible for calibrating the system that would detect debris in the reactor coolant system and allow us to take corrective action before that debris might cause a fuel element failure. There is a Regulatory Guide on all this – RG-1.133:

    http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML0037/ML003740137.pdf

    Unfortunately we had an old analog system that we used for this purpose, and we had no calibration procedure to make certain the system (we called in the metal impact monitoring system or MIMS) was working right. So I figured out how the system worked (having been a Navy nuke, I was used to taking things apart and putting them back together again, and then writing a procedure to reflect what I had done). I then wrote the procedure that the aforementioned Regulatory Guide required and turned it into management.

    The union shop steward confronted me with what I had done, yelling at me that I was costing them union jobs and overtime. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Overtime was more important to this guy than having a correctly written procedure to calibrate a system that we would use to detect impending fuel element failures and prevent an unnecessary plant shutdown. This would save the company millions (and keep the publc safe – duh!). At that point I made up my mind to get the heck out of the union. I was successful within a year or so of that decision and never again have I had to work in any union, thanks be to God.

    I could tell you many other stories – union techs waiting till 3 pm quitting time to tell us there was a problem, and they did it deliberately to get the overtime. After all, at a nuke plant problems have to be addressed post-haste. Another example – engineers at a sister nuke plant voted in the union. When I went to teach them, if the class or the test lasted even one minute past their normal quitting time, they would just walk out. No responsibility. No accountability.

    I utterly despise unionism, liberalism, progressivism and democracy – two wolves and one sheep voting on what’s for dinner. I now work in a company where there are no union techs, and if we have to work an hour or two past quitting time to get the darn job done, then we do. Sure, we complain, but we choose to serve our customer and have a good reputation. Then our boss gives us compensatory time off. We don’t need unions. Being nuclear professionals, we are paid very well (you, John Q. Public, do the paying in your electric bill), and as a result we are expected to behave as adults. I realize nowadays that’s a unique concept.

  • A push was made a couple of years ago, I believe, by SEIU to unionize home care assistants in Illinois but it failed, mainly because of opposition from those who were serving as Medicaid supported caregivers for their own family members.

    It is stuff like this that makes me wonder what to do with my own child, who is autistic. I feel like it would be wrong to rely upon the state or federal government to care for her, particularly when it involves cooperation with corrupt entities such as this, but since my husband and I are not going to live forever and she has no siblings or other relatives close to her age, what are we to do?

  • We parents of autistic kids Elaine, and other disabled kids, will have to set up our own support systems to help all of our kids after we are gone. My autistic son’s twin brother, a very dependable young man, will carry on after we are gone, but I can understand that many parents are not as fortunate as we are, and we will all need to work together to resolve this problem for everyone.

  • Yes, it was in MI that the home based day care businesses were unionized by stealth, although I think that has finally ended. The legislature dealt with the home health care worker unionization by defunding whatever department it was that was upholding it…to no avail. Some Repub senator (a physician by the way) out of the Saginaw area has been doing all he can to keep the home health care worker union scam going. http://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/15943

    The unions are also trying to unionzie the student employees of Michigan U in Ann Arbor–not the ones in the school cafeteria, but the grad assistances. They tried that many moons back and failed. This time it looks like they might fail again, but YNK.
