Hillary Clinton and Electoral Coup in Haiti
The Clintons' high-profile interest in Haiti dates back almost all the way to their wedding in 1975. Shortly after their honeymoon in Acapulco, Bill and Hillary Clinton received an invitation from David Edwards -- a friend and Citibank executive -- to accompany him to Haiti.
Edwards's motivation in getting the Clintons closer to Haiti was neither cultural nor humanitarian. The reason was Citibank's long-standing financial interests in the country, which now go back over a century.
