John Kerry’s days as Secretary of State are limited, and he’s making himself look especially stupid in his final days. In fact, he may be an even worse Sec. of State than Hillary Clinton.
After the UN refused to vote against a UN resolution condemning Israel, Kerry attempted to defend the decision, offering a strong rebuke of the Israeli government (rightfully earning him criticism from both parties).
Now, much like the Secretary of State before him, he’s found himself embroiled in a corruption scandal of his own. As Angry Patriot Movement reported:
During a speech in 2014, Kerry stated, “What we’re talking about here is a multi-million dollar effort that will strengthen the capacity of healthcare workers to deliver lifesaving HIV services.”
The current secretary of state continued, “[I]t will build on the Global Health Service Partnership with Peace Corps and Seed Global Health.”
The problem is the award was non-competitive, and the charity awarded the funding was his daughter!
Dems have tried to backpedal since all of this information was put together by the Daily Caller, saying Kerry had no decision-making role in this award, but that still does not make it legit.
This sounds like something that happens in small towns when a corrupt politician is greasing the ways in an effort to line his own pockets.
Non-competitive bids are a blatant abuse of power, period, especially when tax dollars are involved. It completely incentivizes cronyism, whereas only those with the most government connections have a chance of “competing.”
The 2014 comments conflict with more recent Department of State claims that Kerry “played no role” in official decisions to funnel more than $9 million in sole-source contracts with the nonprofit that recruits volunteer doctors and nurses to medical schools in Third World countries. As usual, the truth comes out eventually!
