Wikileaks: Major GMO, Chemical Company “Paying for Connections” to the Clinton Family

Due to Hilary's long standing ties, the Clinton family is known as big supporters of Monsanto and other agrochemical companies, making themselves enemies of those who support natural and organic food methods.

It might come as no surprise then, the the Clinton family have recently been linked to Dow Chemical, a Midland, MI-based company, famous for it's involvement with agrochemical and GMO methods, in what is known as a “pay for play” relationship, as leaked though emails by Wikileaks.

A recent article from the website quoted an investigator as saying “It appears Dow (has been) paying for connections with Clinton,” 

Secret Deal

Teneo, a private consulting firm run by Clinton aide Douglas Band was at the heart of the alleged plan, which was to gain influence in exchange for money.

According to a 2011 memo, Band's company raised money from corporations like Coca-Cola and Dow Chemical , and facilitated Clinton being paid for engagements  and appearances, such as speech giving.

The friendship between Dow and the Clinton Global Initiative allegedly dates back to 2007, as a spokesperson for Dow said, it is “well aligned to core business and citizenship strategies that have positively leveraged the resources and capabilities of our company.”

Dow sits alongside Bayer, Monsanto, Syngenta, BASF, and DuPont as one of the world leaders in GE and agrochemical products.The company has recently  merged with DuPont, in a similar move as Bayer’s merger with the Monsanto Company, however the merge won't be completed until 2017.

According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, Teneo made calls in 2009 “on behalf of President Clinton” to British lawmakers for Dow’s CEO Andrew Liveris.

Dow has continued to raise donations for the Clinton firm, to $2.8 million in 2011 and  $19.4 million in 2012.
