Traveling High Class On The Donors’ Dime

The New York Post reports that the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Foundation has spent a pretty penny on travel, including at least $1 million in 2011 on Bill Clinton’s travel alone:

Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the non-profit’s tax forms reveal. … 

According to previously undisclosed data provided by the Clinton Foundation, presidential trips accounted for 13 percent of the 2010 travel budget and 10 percent of the 2011 travel budget.

That puts Bill Clinton’s single-year travel tab for 2011 at more than $1 million.

According to The New York Times, the Clintons regularly fly on a $6,000 per hour private plane service: 

Mr. Catsimatidis said he regularly donated time on his plane, which can command around $6,000 an hour, to Mr. Clinton’s foundation. A longtime campaign contributor, he joined the illustrious, and later infamous, list of donors who spent the night in the Lincoln Bedroom during the Clinton administration.
