Limbaugh claimed Clintons are funding Swift Boat Veterans for Truth

››› ››› ANDREW SEIFTER

On the August 31 edition of his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh suggested that former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) are secretly funding the anti-Kerry group Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

From the August 31 edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show:

LIMBAUGH: I still say, if you really dig deep, you might find some Clinton PAC [political action committee] money, laundered three or four different ways, found its way to the Swift Vets. But that's just me.

Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have condemned the false and misleading attacks on Senator John Kerry by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, as well as the links between the group and the Bush-Cheney '04 campaign, as The New York Times reported on August 30.

Limbaugh's remark recalled unfounded speculation by numerous pundits, including himself, that the Clintons do not truly want Senator John Kerry (D-MA) to win the 2004 presidential election; for more examples, see here, here, and here.
