Travel Expenses for Lynn Sweet - Chicago Sun-Times


Lynn, why don't you bring up how Peter Paul and his campaign fraud relationship with the Clintons. Just because Peter Paul has a dark past as a con man, does not mean his case regarding the fraudulent Clinton campaign null.

Why do you insist on bringing up Rezko and Obama rather than Peter Paul v. Clintons?

Thanks for sharing the details. I always wondered about the logistics of journalists flying on a candidate's chartered plane. So . . . how is the food?

Hello Lynn,

Is this a complain or a comment?
Next time stay at home and watch the news on TV.

One love
