The Harrah's Foundation presented former President Bill Clinton with a $1 million donation to the William J. Clinton Foundation Monday at Caesars Palace. Clinton then gave a speech to Harrah's employees and others about his work in Haiti, why individual charity and volunteering can make a difference, and his belief that Nevada will make it out of the economic downturn even stronger than before.

  1. I will never patronize another Harrah's property as long as i live. $1 million dollar DONATION for a brief appearance. Something much bigger is going on here. They will give Clinton millions while firing my cousin to save money. Whats wrong here.

  2. Well that just tells me who is more important, polictical puppets or consumers. A million dollars, and we are struggling to make ends meet. Harrah's has gotten to big. But I will give them credit, at least we the public can see the pay-off's instead of their back room tactics.

  3. Must be the money they stole from their customers.

  4. Harrah is making alot of money if they can give up a million.I am sure its a tax write off.

  5. Why not give it to teachers here in NEVADA. I too will avoid Harrah's and urge others to avoid any of their properties as well.

  6. A cool million bucks to bill clinton while telling state legislators to go take a hike on filling budget gaps.
    LOL

  7. So when I'm losing money at Harrahs I'm actually helping someone in Haiti.Maybe I can write some of it off as a charitable deduction.

  8. I will never step foot in one of their properties again.

    This is bribe money.

  9. just another example of harrah's paying a political bribe so that the FEDS look the other way and continue to allow the criminal giant to bully everyone on town from patrons it cheats to employees that get screwed...

    HARRAHS CHEATS!!!
    INVESTIGATE THE GAMING CONTROL BOARD!!!
    INDICT CROOKED DA BERNIE ZADROWSKI!!!
