Washington (CNN) – An effort to pay off Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign debt gives two lucky winners the chance to spend a day in the Big Apple with the current secretary of state's husband, former President Bill Clinton.
By contributing as little as $10 online, people are entered to win a trip for two to New York for a day of adventure with the 42nd president. This will be the second time Bill Clinton has raffled off his time to help pay down his wife's 2008 obligations. He made a similar jaunt last year when the debt total was at $700,000.
"I love meeting new people, and I so enjoyed when we flew one of Hillary's biggest fans to New York to spend the day with me that I'd like to do it again," Mr. Clinton wrote this week in an e-mail to millions of Hillary supporters. "You and a friend will have the chance to fly to New York to spend a day with me."
As of April, the current secretary of state's campaign organization, Hillary for President, owed almost $330,000, according to the most recent Federal Election Commission filing.
According to the Federal Election Commission, the campaign is in debt to political polling and strategic consulting firm Penn, Schoen and Berland Associates. Funds collected will be dispersed to the company, whose president Mark Penn was Hillary's chief campaign strategist through her Senate and presidential races and an adviser during Clinton's administration.
The deadline for donations in the competition is Tuesday, June 14th.
Can Monika apply? Of course she'd have Anthony Weiner as her chaperone.
The article wasn't clear no a couple of points. Are the two winners required to attend the same date, and must they submit a photograph as part of their entry fee?
sounds like pimping to me...
Sorry, I wouldn't go out on a date with this guy if they paid me to. I think he has already had a few too many.
Now wait a minute. The Clinton's can't scrape together the $300K to pay off her campaign debts without having to bilk the public to pony up the money. Come on – pay it off and move on. Once Hilary leaves the State Dept, she will rake in millions.
What's 2nd prize, a date with Obama or a photo of Weiner's weiner?
Tony; of course they can afford it by why would they pay it if they can con a bunch of people into giving them the money instead. LOL
I'd rather win a date with Ann Coulter.
Is anyone getting the point, there's still that possibility Hillary will run again. But whether she does or not I'll send her money but not as much as I'll send to President Obama.
I see the article says "for as little as $10" you can be entered to win. Does anybody think that just $10 is gonna get you that date or do you think it will somehow go to the people that pony up a significant amount more. this isnt going to be a random thing. Bill isnt wasting his time with someone who only comes up with $10.
@dan: Haha, like Jim Tressel and how he rigged raffle tickets at football camps?
Uhhh, is that safe? Make sure you have a can a mace handy and a cell phone.
What a joke, who in their right mind would want a date with that pervert?
i think I will try the same tactic, to pay my debt down, capitalism at work, though i have no problems with Clinton
I would love to have dinner with Bill Clinton. One of the smartest people on this planet. He beats anything on the
teacan turkey farm, none of whom I would even sit at the same table with. At least they are trying to pay their debts,
not like some witches who live off donations and offer nothing remotely comprehensible regarding the complexness
of the World.
Can't stop pimping baby!
Let's donate money so Alex Jones has dinner with him, with cameras. That'd make great television.
