Hillary “Dead Broke” Clinton Hopped In A Private Jet On Her Way Out Of Iowa Yesterday

Hillary Clinton and her campaign went to great lengths a few months ago to demonstrate exactly how “cheap” they were. The idea was this: get stories written about how frugal Clinton’s campaign is so Clinton’s 2008 donors won’t feel burned again by her lavish spending.

A reporter followed Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta as he rode the bus (Les Miserable!) from New York to Washington.

In April, the campaign told reporters the campaign office printer’s default was set to double-sided.

And campaign manager Robby Mook forlornly told donors, hat in hand, that he would not be reimbursed for his cab ride to that day’s donor meeting.

But outside of her carefully constructed media appearances, it seems old habits die hard. An America Rising tracker caught Clinton and her staff boarding a private jet yesterday as she left the state:

This news should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed Clinton’s career. Clinton spent $19.2 million on private jets during her 2008 campaign alone. She spent $225,000 of taxpayer money on private jets as a senator. And the Bill, Hillary, & Chelsea Clinton Foundation spent $50 million—10% of their budget—on travel between 2003 and 2012

It seems the “dead broke” phase of Clinton’s campaign is officially over.
