Not A Good Day For The Clinton’s

First, as I posted earlier, the leader in the Democratic primary process, Barack Obama, turned down Mrs. Clinton’s offer to be her Vice Presidential choice.

Then, one of her most valued super delegates, Governor Eliot Spitzer of New York, is now linked to a prostitution probe and may resign soon.

Finally, we learn that Brazil Renewable Energy Co., known as Brenco, was investigated and was found to have “degrading” living conditions for 133 sugarcane workers. Bill Clinton’s connection is via an investment in Brenco by The Yucaipa Cos., a U.S.-based fund in which Clinton was a senior advisor until last year. His investment in Brenco is valued between $15,001 and $50,000, according to a financial dislosure report submitted last year by his wife, presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.

At five sites inspected, workers “complained they were suffering from hunger and cold, and all of the locations were overcrowded and with terrible sanitary conditions,” according to a statement issued Friday by Jaqueline Carrijo, who led the inspections last month.

Not a good day indeed for the couple who want to be Co-President again.
