The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Bill Clinton’s foundation arranged a $2 million pledge to a power company partly owned by a wealthy blond divorcée who is a frequent visitor to Clinton’s home. The Secret Service refers to her by the nickname “Energizer.”
The financial promise to Julie Tauber McMahon’s firm from the Clinton Global Initiative was placed on its 2010 conference agenda at Bill’s request, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
“The initiative commits $2 million to support the work of Energy Pioneer Solutions, a company founded to deliver energy savings to communities in rural America,” said a 2010 statement from the Clinton charity.
The Wall Street Journal also points out that Clinton was a pitch man for the company when it came to lobbying for federal funds. He helped it grab an $812,000 federal grant via then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu.
McMahon owns 29 percent of Energy Pioneer Solutions, which was given the money to make people’s homes more energy-efficient.
The pretty blond is a mother of three. She lives close to the Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, Westchester. McMahon, 54, is rumored to be the woman dubbed “Energizer” by the Secret Service because of her frequent visits to the Clinton home, according to RadarOnline.
Under federal law, tax-exempt nonprofits like Clinton’s are not supposed to act in anyone’s private interest, the Journal reported. Spokespeople for Bill and Hillary Clinton declined to comment.
A foundation spokesperson defended the financial commitment as “a common practice in the broader philanthropic space.”
And to make the day worse for Bill, a new investigation shows the former president has been flying around with a sex offender. Check it out.
