Bill Clinton’s birthday bash proves the Clintons just can’t stop influence-peddling

For a giant, flashing sign that the Clintons’ influence-peddling will never end, look no further than Bill’s 70th birthday party Friday night at the Rainbow Room — which of course is a Clinton Foundation fund-raising bash.

Yup, that’s right; show ’em the money, money, money: Donors must give $250,000 to be a “chair” of the party, six figures to be a co-chair, 50 grand to be a vice-chair.

True, buying a ticket will get you some glam — Barbara Streisand, Jon Bon Jovi and Wynton Marsalis are all to perform. But how many others hope their gift will at least get them onto some future White House guest list, and possibly buy even larger favors?

Oh, and the foundation won’t disclose the night’s donors, despite earlier promises to do so. And it will keep taking all “gifts” right up through Nov. 7 (at least).

What’s really remarkable here is the Clintons’ utter shamelessness — or the compulsive need to raise cash. The event, notes Politico, has “induced cringes among some Clinton supporters, who cast it as an unnecessary show of excess at a sensitive time in the presidential race.” Ya think?

Less than two months before Election Day, Donald Trump has moved into a near-tie with Hillary thanks in good part to her endless scandals — including weeks of damning news about how Clinton Foundation donations bought favors from the Clinton State Department.

Yet Bill and Hillary not only won’t promise to shut the foundation down if she wins, they won’t put a low profile on its pre-election fund-raising. The only concession to propriety is that Hillary will skip her husband’s party.

With the White House at stake, the Clintons can’t even pretend to change their ways. Don’t you dare imagine they’ll be any less shameless if she manages to win.
