Clintons use taxpayers’ money ‘to buy office supplies’

By Paperstone on June 19, 2008 in Office Supplies

US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton – and her former president husband Bill Clinton – has been using taxpayer’s money to pay for office supplies, according to a new report.

Despite the couple’s $100 million (£50 million) fortune, they can still claim up to $8 million a year as a result of Mr Clinton’s federal retirement package – which is given to all former presidents of the country.

A report by the General Services Administration found that the Clintons spent $143,000 during 2007 on office supplies and office equipment, as Mrs Clinton prepared her Democrat presidential campaign.

The documents also show that former president George Bush – whose son is currently in power – spent a total of $328,000 on office equipment, which includes "computers and peripheral equipment".

Earlier this month, Canon launched a new product designed to help businesses calculate the costs of their office supplies.

Technology developed by Canon and Sepialine can now calculate how much it costs businesses to print documents using their office machines – and also find ways of reducing costs.

Reducing reliance on printer cartridges and inkjet cartridges is at the heart of Canon’s plans, as it looks to improve its environmental record in its office supplies section.
