Hillary creates appearance of paying for endorsement
Her major backers donated nearly $90,000 to former governor Tom Vilsack, D-Iowa, shortly after Vilsack dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed Clinton, the Los Angeles Times' Dan Morain reports. (The Clinton campaign also bought Vilsack's donor list for $20,000.) The cash helped Vilsack retire part of his $148,000 campaign debt.
With help like this, why not endorse Clinton?
