BOUGHT 800 SHARES OF CHENEY’S HALLIBURTON “
Drudge Report, October 3, 2002
Drudge in his report stated “Streisand bought and traded
800 shares of Halliburton while Dick Cheney was its Chief Executive.”
DID THE REPUBLICANS ‘DRUDGE’ UP TODAY?
low will Republicans stoop to try to stifle the voice of singer,
director, actress, activist Barbra Streisand? Today’s low blow
has them rummaging through the tax returns of her charitable foundation.
The Streisand Foundation gives away money to organizations that
work to protect the environment, our civil liberties, the rights
of women and children, and fight against nuclear proliferation.
The Streisand Foundation’s money is handled by an outside investment
adviser who, at his discretion, buys and sells stocks and bonds
to support the foundation. Unfortunately, since this administration
took over, the foundation has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars
that would otherwise go to worthwhile causes. Before Dick Cheney
became Vice President, 800 shares of Halliburton were purchased
for the foundation in April of 1999. All were sold in 2000 with
a loss of $1,288 dollars.
