Contract With NBC Prohibits Chelsea Clinton from Campaigning
Unlike her famous father, former president Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton hasn’t spoken one word in support of President Barack Obama’s bid for re-election.
But that doesn’t mean she isn’t supportive of the Democrats recapturing the White House in November, she’s merely adhering to the terms of her contract with NBC.
As an NBC employee who appears on camera, Chelsea Clinton is expressly prohibited from involving herself in any political cause or campaigns, which is the real reason for her absence from political rallies and her uncharacteristic silence, reports the New York Post.
Chelsea was a valued contributor several years ago when her mother Hilary Clinton, now Secretary of State, was running for the presidential nomination.
She even was the individual who introduced Hilary at the 2008 National Democratic Convention. But so long as she is working for NBC and wants to keep receiving a paycheck from NBC, Chelsea Clinton will have to avoid the appearance of impropriety by not publicly supporting Obama.
