Bill and Hillary's NY house payment paid by the government-Fiction!
Bill and Hillary Clinton's New York Home Mortgage is Being Covered By Secret Service Payments-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Bill and Hillary Clinton bought a house in New York, but there was no room for the Secret Service, so they built a special area for the Secret Service...and are charging the same amount for the Secret Service's use of that area as their mortgage payment.
This eRumor is also sometimes circulated with the eRumor about Hillary Clinton refusing to meet with a group of mothers of veterans, which is also Fiction! CLICK HERE for that story.
The Truth:All presidents and former presidents are eligible for Secret Service protection and, according to a Secret Service spokesman, the presidents are reimbursed for any area of the home that is used by Secret Service agents. The amount is based on a formula, however, not defined by the homeowner. Based on that formula, Mr. Clinton would be eligible for more than $1,000, but he has declined the money for his New York home.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
Just in case your blood pressure wasn’t up enough. As you know, the Clinton’s had to establish residence in New York for Hillary to run for the Senate. So they bought that big house – BUT there was no place for Secret Service which has statutory responsibility to protect the First Family. So, a special ‘safe area’ was built. NOW, the Clinton’s are charging them rent! Perfectly legal. BUT…! It just happens that their rent is about the same amount as the Clinton’s’ mortgage payment! In short, we taxpayers pay for the Secret Service addition, AND the Clinton’s mortgage! Dang deal, eh?
What will it take for the American public to wake up? Don’t you just feel like you’ve been suckered again, fellow taxpayers? I say let’s pass this info throughout the length and breadth of this Nation to shake the American people into a heightened state of anger upon knowing they have been literally raped during their long sleep by no other than those trustees they have appointed to look after their interests.
