Tell the Clintons to give their $25 million in speaking fees to good causes

Wall Street, Big Pharma, and corporate technology interests have shelled out hundreds of thousands of dollars supposedly just to hear Hillary or Bill Clinton give a speech.

According to a new report by Consortium News, Hillary Clinton took in $11.8 million in 51 speaking fees from January 2014 to May 2015, when she officially launched her presidential campaign. Bill Clinton delivered 53 paid speeches to bring in $13.3 million during that same period. That's over $25 million total, largely if not entirely from wealthy parties with a strong interest in influencing U.S. government policy.

We urge the Clintons to clear their corrupted image by donating their $25 million in recent lecture fees to organizations legitimately working for campaign finance reform, Wall Street reform, environmental protection, and peace.
