It Pays to Be a Hagan

Report reveals sketchy paperwork surrounding son's involvement in stimulus-funded company

Unlike John Fogerty, Tilden Hagan is a Senator’s son, and, shockingly, things have worked out pretty well for him. By sheer coincidence, after his mom voted for the 2009 stimulus package, a company Tilden Hagan co-owned with his future brother-in-law was awarded a taxpayer-funded contract to install solar panels. The company overseeing the project, JDC Manufacturing, was, by sheer coincidence, owned by Tilden’s dad. The deal appears to have violated JDC’s own conflict-of-interest policy. Oh well.

What else is she hiding?

Shortly before Hillary Clinton took the stage Saturday at a campaign event for Kay Hagan, a woman decked out in Hillary swag traversed the crowd informing attendees that the professional public speaker was about to have a birthday. (Clinton turned 67 on Sunday.) The plan was for everyone to sing Happy Birthday after Hagan introduced her guest of honor. It didn't really work out, however, because Hillary just kept talking, and enough people in the crowd reflexively cheered after every sentence to drown out the singing.
