Montoya And Coggins Have Landed Presidential Appointments As A Result Of Being Part Of The "Clinton's Rolodex"

Regina Montoya And Her Husband Paul Coggins Have Greatly Benefitted From Supporting The Clinton's Since The 1990s. "[Paul] Coggins and his wife, Regina Montoya, a Dallas lawyer and TV commentator, have both been extremely active in supporting the Clintons in previous campaigns. In Clinton's first term, Montoya served as White House liaison to state and local governments. She was recently selected on a temporary basis as an advisor to the U.S. Delegation of the United Nations General Assembly." (Miriam Rozen, "The Man Who Would Be Judge," Dallas Observer, 12/31/1998)

  • The "Hillary Connection" Landed Montoya Her An Appointment In The Clinton White House. " Montoya brushes aside talk about her relationship with Hillary Clinton. Both attended Wellesley College-several years apart-and have served together on its board. It's well known that Hillary Clinton's network of friends stretches as far as her husband's, but Montoya wants no misunderstanding as to the reporting relationship in the White House. Twice, she stresses that she works for the president, not the first lady. Still, one influential Dallas Democrat, who did not want to be identified, insists that Montoya owes her job to 'the Hillary connection.' It was the first lady, he says, who put Montoya's name on the 'A' List. 'Regina wasn't even on the radar screen, according to people from Washington, until the meeting between Clinton and [Mexican president Carlos] Salinas in Austin,' he says. 'She got in the limo with Mack McLarty [now White House chief of staff] [sic] and stayed with him throughout the entire visit.'" (Chris Tucker, "Montoya's Moment," D Magazine, 5/93)
  • Coggin Was Appointed By Clinton Administration To Serve As U.S. Attorney For The District Of Texas From In 1993. ("Paul E. Coggins," Locke Lord LLP, Accessed 11/10/15)

Montoya And Coggin's Names Have "Been Ensconced For Years On The Clintons' Rolodex…" "Still, while their names have been ensconced for years on the Clintons' Rolodex (said to be the size of a Conestoga wagon wheel), Montoya plays down the personal connection. Compared to a FOB like Mack McLarty, who has known Bill Clinton since they wore Davy Crockett coonskin caps in grade school, Montoya and Coggins are more accurately FOFOBAHs-Friends of Friends of Bill and Hillary…" (Chris Tucker, "Montoya's Moment," D Magazine, 5/93)

THE SPIELVOGELS ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER WHITE HOUSE STAY AFTER THEIR CLINTON FUNDRAISER WITH BILL IN NEW YORK CITY

Today, Hillary Clinton Will Attend A $2,700 Per Person Fundraiser At The Home Of Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel and Ambassador Carl Spielvogel In New York City. "Bill Clinton will be attending a reception in support of Hillary For America in New York City hosted at the home of Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel and Ambassador Carl Spielvogel. RSVP at two different contribution levels." (Reception With Bill Clinton For Hillary For America, PoliticalPartyTime.org, Accessed 11/14/15)

The Spielvogels Have Been "Diehard Clintonistas" For Over 20 Years, The Husband And Wife Are "Veteran Check-Writers," Contributing To Every Single Clinton Election

Since 1992 The Spielvogels Have Contributed To Every Single Clinton Election. ( Center For Responsive Politics , Accessed 11/14/15)

  • The Spielvogels Are "Diehard Clintonistas," Which Earned The Mister An Ambassadorship During Clinton's Second Term. "The Spielvogels are themselves diehard Clintonistas, veteran check-writers whose support during the early days earned the mister an ambassadorship in Slovakia during Bill's second term. To this day, they preside over the fund-raising circuit like landed aristocracy… " (Lizzy Ratner, "$26,700 Chuck Roast," Observer News, 8/1/05)

The Speilvogels Have Also Contributed Thousands Of Dollars To The Clinton Foundation

Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel Has Given Between $10,001 And $25,000 To The Clinton Foundation. ("Contributor And Grantor Information", The Clinton Foundation, Accessed 11/14/15)

Carl Spielvogel Has Given Between $5,001 And $10,000 To The Clinton Foundation. ("Contributor And Grantor Information", The Clinton Foundation, Accessed 11/14/15)

The Spielvogels Both Got Executive Appointments By President Clinton

In 2000, Carl Spielvogel Was Appointed By President Clinton To Be Ambassador To Slovakia During A Recess Of The Senate. (Carl Spielvogel, U.S. Department Of State Office Of The Historian , Accessed 11/14/15)

  • Spielvogel Was Appointed With No Foreign Policy Expertise, But Instead Was A Major Democratic Party Benefactor. "Using a provision that allows the White House to make emergency appointments while Congress is in recess, President Bill Clinton named three new ambassadors late last month. None offers any foreign policy expertise. None has served in the beleaguered foreign service. None is what might be called an academic heavyweight. Each appointee was, however, a major Democratic Party benefactor. According to a Senate Foreign Relations Committee investigation, the three ponied up a combined $550,900 for the Democrats since 1997. More than half of that was unregulated soft money. In a separate example, the committee alleges that, just days after his appointment as ambassador to Slovakia, advertising mogul Carl Spielvogel hosted a Gore fund-raiser at his Southampton home that raised about $250,000." ("Statecraft As Spoils," St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 9/18/00)

In 1992, Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel Was Appointed By President Clinton To The United States Commission Of Fine Arts. (Council Members, New York State Council On The Arts, Accessed 11/14/15)

The Spielvogels Are Looking Forward To Another White House Lincoln Bedroom Stay

The Spielvogels Were Guests In The Lincoln Bedroom At The Clinton White House. (The Lincoln Bedroom Guest List, CNN, Accessed 11/14/15)

  • More Than Half Of President Clinton's Overnight White House Guests Who Donated To Democrats Are Giving To Hillary's Campaign Or A Super PAC Supporting Her . "Among donors to Democrat Bill Clinton's campaigns first revealed as overnight guests of his White House and today still living, more than half are still giving - this time to Hillary Clinton. The Center for Public Integrity published the first list of donors who nabbed a night in the Clinton White House - and whose stays sparked outrage and investigations - in its 1996 report, 'Fat Cat Hotel.'" (Liz Essley Whyte, "Clinton White House Sleepover Guests Still Writing Checks,"The Center For Public Integrity , 10/26/15)
  • Bill Clinton Donor And Former Florida State Rep. Dick Batchelor: "Anybody Who Says They Don't Want To Visit The White House And Spend The Night Is Probably Not Telling The Truth. If I Had An Opportunity To Go Back, I Would Absolutely Go Back … I Need To Return The Towels." "'Last time I stayed in the Queen's Bedroom, so I need to be upgraded to the Lincoln Bedroom', said former Florida state Rep. Dick Batchelor, who orchestrated the first Florida fundraiser for Bill Clinton in 1991. 'I have no idea whether that would take place or not, but anybody who says they don't want to visit the White House and spend the night is probably not telling the truth. If I had an opportunity to go back, I would absolutely go back,' he added. 'I need to return the towels.'" (Liz Essley Whyte, "Clinton White House Sleepover Guests Still Writing Checks,"The Center For Public Integrity , 10/26/15)
