Shocker! What’s utterly pathetic is what a mere $2500 will buy.
At least one of the women Donald Trump invited as his guest to the debate Sunday night as part of his effort to paint Bill and Hillary Clinton as victimizers of women received a cash payment from a pro-Trump organization.
A super PAC founded by former Trump campaign senior advisor Roger Stone has paid $2,500 to Kathy Shelton, an Arkansas woman sexually assaulted as a child by a man whom Hillary Clinton was appointed to represent in court. Trump called out Clinton for her work on the case during a testy exchange Sunday, as he sought to deflect attention from the recently disclosed video in which Trump appears to brag about sexually assaulting woman.
The payment, first reported by the Associated Press, came in May from the Committee to Restore America’s Greatness PAC. Campaign finance records describe it as being made for “contract labor.” Stone told the AP that Shelton “was extensively interviewed on video about her experience with Hillary Clinton and was paid for her time.”
Stone has arranged to pay other women critical of the Clintons. At one point he started a fund to cover the mortgage of Kathleen Willey, who accused Bill Clinton of making unwanted sexual advances toward her. Stone said Trump had contributed to it, a claim the Trump campaign denies.
It was also unclear who paid the travel costs to the debate for the Clinton accusers who came. Juanita Broaddrick, an Arkansas nursing home administrator whose allegations of rape against Bill Clinton were dismissed in court, told reporters that Breitbart Media, a conservative news outlet with close ties to the Trump campaign, paid her travel.
