Hillary’s past may finally be catching up with her. In her highly-touted, grammy award-winning 1996 book, It Takes A Village, the presidential wannabe recounted using prisoners as laborers.
Her description sounded akin to slavery. Here’s the excerpt from her book:
When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor’s mansion was a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs, and I was assured that the inmates were carefully screened. I was also told the onetime murders were far the preferred security risks. The crimes of the convicted murderers who worked at the governor’s mansion usually involved a disagreement with someone they knew, often another young man in the neighborhood…
I saw and learned a lot as I got to know them better. We enforced rules strictly and sent back to prison any inmate who broke a rule. I discovered as I had been told I would, that we had far fewer disciplinary problems with inmates who were in for murder than with those who had committed property crimes. In fact, over the years we lived there, we became friendly with a few of them, African-American men in their thirties who had already served twelve to eighteen years of their sentences.
Filling in for Glenn, Mike Opelka shared his reaction on radio Thursday.
“So Hillary Clinton admits that when she and Bill moved into the governor’s mansion, when Bill was governor of Arkansas, that they used prison labor for ten years. That they actually used unpaid labor,” Opelka said.
