Clinton: Grade B-plus.

Trump: Grade D

Summary: Major mistake by Trump for refusing to accept the election results. His grade could go lower, depending on how the public reacts.

“Bad hombres” reference to Mexican drug dealers was weak. But he scored when he pointed to Clinton’s supposed 30 years of failure.

Clinton was weak on Clinton Foundation pay-to-play accusations. Comments during the debate about providing leadership for all Americans were strong. Her performance was better than the second debate, but not as good as first.

Pace University holds panel discussion on “The Trump Foundation, The Clinton Foundation, and the 2016 Election: What Does it All Mean for Philanthropy?”

Pace University holds panel discussion on “The Trump Foundation, The Clinton Foundation, and the 2016 Election: What Does it All Mean for Philanthropy?”

New York, NY – October 21, 2016 --  The intersection of politics and philanthropy, and a constellation of issues around public engagement with philanthropy were covered during a panel discussion organized by Pace University’s Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship on Wednesday, October 19.

“The Trump Foundation, The Clinton Foundation, and the 2016 Election: What Does it All Mean for Philanthropy?” was the topic of discussion with panelists including Benjamin Soskis, a fellow at the Center for Nonprofit Management, Philanthropy and Policy at George Mason University; Stacy Palmer, editor of The Chronicle of Philanthropy; James J. Fishman, Professor Emeritus of Law at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University; and Rebecca Tekula (Moderator), Assistant Professor of Public Administration in the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences and Executive Director of Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship at Pace.

“A key objective of the Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship is to foster an environment that encourages interdisciplinary thinking on social innovation and philanthropy, and provide opportunities like this to bring leading scholars to campus to foster collaboration and conversation.  The 2016 election, in particular, has sparked great interest in questions around philanthropy and foundations,” said Professor Tekula.  “Questions surrounding the Trump Foundation and the Clinton Foundation present an important learning opportunity for our students and the community.  Essentially we, the public, are the owners of both of these organizations. I believe it is our civic duty to understand on a basic level what is usual, what is legal, and how these organizations are regulated.”

Panelists discussed common misconceptions about foundations, including what funds can and can’t be used for, and explored questions and criticisms that have swirled around both organizations and how each might have avoided some of the problems they’ve encountered.

The event was co-sponsored by the Master of Public Administration Program, Nonprofit Studies Minor, Peace and Justice Studies Program, Department of Political Science, and Department of Women's and Gender Studies at Pace.

About The Helene and Grant Wilson Center: The Helene & Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship was created in 2005 to serve the nonprofit and social enterprise community and Pace University. Devoted to honing the risk-taking spirit and managerial skills of nonprofit organizations and social ventures, the Center was launched with a pledge from Helene and Grant Wilson, Boston-area entrepreneurs and philanthropists whose philanthropic endeavors convinced them that entrepreneurial management can help social ventures increase their impact.

Fort Worth Star-Telegram: "Texas voter fraud concerns prompt hotline offering $5,000 reward for tips"

. . . “The fact is, … voter fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is nearly non-existent, and much of the problems associated with alleged fraud in elections relates to unintentional mistakes by voters or election administrators,” said Jessica Lavariega-Monforti, a political science professor at Pace University in New York City.

“Most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless — and that of the few allegations remaining, most reveal election irregularities and other forms of election misconduct,” she said research shows.

. . . calls on Twitter for boycotts of Ivanka's brand don't seem to hurt her business. "Not only can her brand transcend it, but the more people say they're going to boycott her brand, the more they're going to drive [those] who are either middle of the road or pro-Republican to choose the brand," says Pace University professor of marketing Larry Chiagouris. Ivanka Trump's major retail partners, including Bloomingdales, Zappos, Amazon, Dillard's, Nieman Marcus, Macy's, Lord & Taylor, and Nordstrom show no signs of discontinuing their affiliation.

"If everyone who votes for Trump buys her products, she'd be the wealthiest, most important fashion brand in the world," adds Chiagouris. "Think about that...Those Twitter people? She doesn't need their business."

CNNPolitics: "Why Trump's talk of a rigged vote is so dangerous"

. . . Given that Trump has branded himself in politics, business and life as the ultimate winner, the prospect of a crushing defeat in November on the grandest stage must be a bitter one. So pre-spinning a possible defeat may represent a face-saving way out.
 
"He is hedging himself against a loss: If he does lose, he can say that is a fraud," said Jessica Lavariega-Monforti, chair of the Department of Politics at Pace University, New York.

La Opinión: "Para movilizar a su base, Trump insiste en que habrá fraude electoral"

. . . “El fraude electoral es muy raro, la suplantación de un votante casi no existe, y muchos de los problemas con el presunto fraude en realidad tienen que ver con errores no intencionales de los propios votantes o de los administradores”, explicó Jessica Lavariega-Monforti, analista y directora de la Facultad de Ciencias Políticas de Pace University en Nueva York.

“La verdadera amenaza a la integridad de nuestras elecciones es el continuo discurso sobre el fraude electoral, que ha producido leyes que cuestionan tanto el derecho de los votantes como los resultados, sean victorias o pérdidas”, advirtió.

Wired: "VW’s $15B Diesel Settlement Might Actually Hurt Electric Cars"

. . . “Chargepoint is getting it in the neck,” says John Alan James, chairman of the Center for Global Governance, Reporting, and Regulation at Pace University in New York. He calls this an example of the government “picking winners”—or, rather, making VW pick winners. “I don’t think it’s good public policy, and I think it’s a legacy issue,” a departing administration striking a deal to lock in a technology it supports.

. . . Electronic health records sell at a premium in the criminal world when compared to a consumer's social security number or credit card, said Darren Hayes, an assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Pace University's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems in New York. When hospitals admit star athletes, for instance, they may see a spike in hacking efforts. "It's very, very valuable" information, he said.
