Reports: Clintons Began Renovations on New NY Home Without Permits
Bill and Hillary Clinton did not obtain the required permits before starting renovations on a new home in Chappaqua, New York.
The New York Times reported that the Clintons started ambitious construction on the $1.16 million property over the summer.
The second home is on the same street as the house where the Clintons have lived since since 1999.
The Times reported:
Those records, first reported and posted online by The Journal News, based in White Plains, revealed that the town received a complaint in early October about excavation work at the Clintons’ new home that seemed related to the removal of dead trees. But when an inspector arrived, he noticed that a much bigger project was underway: The home was being renovated, complete with an updated kitchen; a new heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system; walls being moved; and the backfilling of a swimming pool with gravel.
Without informing the town to obtain the proper permits, the Clintons apparently set the project in motion soon after they bought the house in August, with an eye toward having everything ready for the holidays.
Betsy McCaughey said on Fox Business Network this morning that this is yet another example of the Clintons ignoring laws that average Americans have to live by.
"She decided to renovate her home without getting the permits that all the little people have to get. She believes she is above the law," said McCaughey.
Mike Huckabee agreed that whether it's laws on campaign finance, preservation of evidence or protecting national security, the Clintons seem to "thumb their noses."
