15 nefarious groups Chuck Hagel may have accepted money from

Font Size:

On Wednesday, the obviously false rumor that embattled Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel accepted money for a speaking engagement from a group allegedly called “The Friends of Hamas” was definitively debunked.

Whatever Hagel’s faults, it seemed unlikely that a man of such great ambition would actually cash a check from a group called “The Friends of Hamas,”  no matter how hostile to Israel he may be. The comic absurdity of the idea boggles the mind.

But on the same day “The Friends of Hamas” scandal was put to rest, 15 different Senate sources contacted The Daily Caller to tell us that it is possible that Hagel accepted speaking fees from equally troubling organizations. (Editor’s Note: We cannot confirm the sources work in the Senate, nor can we confirm that the different sources were not the same person using different voices.)

Below, we provide for the first time 15 possible groups Chuck Hagel may have accepted funds from. To be sure, we can’t prove that he definitely accepted funds from these organizations at this time — or if these groups even exist. But we can confirm he has never denied accepting money from them.
