カナダ: トルドー政権の環境・先住民関連政策の遅れに抗議するIdle No More
Shelton was paid $2,500 by a political action committee founded by Trump ally Roger Stone, The Associated Press has learned. The May payment to Shelton by the Committee to Restore America's Greatness PAC, founded by Stone, was described as "contract labour" in campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
Asked by The Associated Press about the reason for the payment, Stone said in an email that Shelton "was extensively interviewed on video about her experience with Hillary Clinton and was paid for her time."
Shelton did not respond to a written request for comment left at her home in recent weeks by an AP reporter.
Stone is a former lobbyist for Trump, the GOP presidential nominee, and has boasted about his role as a bit player in the Watergate scandal. Stone served as a senior adviser to Trump's White House campaign in its early days. After separating from the campaign early last summer, Stone created a series of pro-Trump organizations. He has said he remains in direct touch with the candidate.
Stone has arranged to pay other women critical of the Clintons.
Earlier this year, Stone sought to raise money to pay off the mortgage of Willey, who accused Bill Clinton of making unwanted sexual advances toward her during her time as a volunteer in his White House in the 1990s. Stone claimed in an online video interview that Trump had personally contributed to the fund.
Trump's campaign has not endorsed Stone's political action committee, and has sent the group a cease and desist letter. The campaign has denied that Trump gave money to Willey's mortgage fund.
A company called WeSearchr said on Twitter that it paid for Shelton's trip to the debate in St. Louis. That firm was co-founded by conservative media figure Charles C. Johnson, an outspoken Trump supporter. WeSearchr says it crowdfunds research about rumours it believes are not being covered by news outlets.
Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email Sunday that the campaign paid for Broaddrick's travel to the debate. "She was our invited guest," Hicks wrote.
