It all makes sense now.

No wonder Rush Limbaugh refers to Bill Clinton’s presidential library, which houses the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, as the “Clinton Library and Massage Parlor.”

The news here is that former Playboy model Cheryl Saban, who appeared naked in the iconic former nudie magazine in April 1979, is a member of the board of directors of the Clinton Foundation, Eric Owens of the Daily Caller reports.

In 2009, Saban’s current husband, billionaire Haim Saban, was the Democratic Party’s biggest single donor, according to Tablet, an online magazine. Haim Saban is also among the largest donors to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to a February report by AlterNet. Saban met Haim when he hired her as his assistant after placing an ad in The Hollywood Reporter.

President Obama made Mrs. Saban a representative to the United Nations.

Here is her biography from a 2012 White House press release:

Cheryl  Saban, Nominee for Representative of the United States of America to the Sixty-seventh Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations
Cheryl Saban is an author, philanthropist, and advocate for women and children.   As an author, her work focuses predominantly on family, women’s empowerment, and healthcare.  In 2009, she founded the non-profit organization Women’s Self Worth Foundation.  Ms. Saban serves on the boards of The Saban Research Institute, Girls Inc., and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.  She is a member of the American Psychological Association.  Previously, she served on the Board of Overseers at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California (2008-2011), the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Universal Preschool (2004-2007), and as a Commissioner for the City of Los Angeles Commission for Children, Youth, and Their Families (2002-2003).  She received a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from California Coast University.

So there’s that.
