Chorus grows for Clintons to shutter charitable foundation

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton waves to the crowd with her husband, former president Bill Clinton at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaThe Clinton Foundation, the family philanthropy of Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, should shut down or transfer operations to another charity despite its good work to avoid perceptions of “pay-for-play”, The Washington Post and USA Today said in editorials on Wednesday. Despite plans announced earlier this week to reorganize the Clinton Foundation if Hillary Clinton wins the Nov. 8 election, USA Today said the global charity must close for the Democratic candidate to avoid any appearance of unethical ties. “The only way to eliminate the odor surrounding the foundation is to wind it down and put it in mothballs, starting today, and transfer its important charitable work to another large American charity such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,” the paper’s editorial board wrote.
