Democrat senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris raised money with Eric Schneiderman, the New York attorney general who just resigned over multiple allegations of abusing women. Will they give back the money that was raised with him?
The Daily Caller reports:
Will Democrats Return Money Fundraised With Schneiderman?
Democrats are facing a dilemma as they decide whether or not to return money they raised with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
At least two Democratic 2020 hopefuls, California Sen. Kamala Harris and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, have held high-dollar fundraisers with Schneiderman. Schneiderman resigned from AG on Monday after four women accused him of being physically and emotionally abusive to them.
In September 2011, Schneiderman hosted a fundraiser for then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris, even receiving a $5,000 check from Donald Trump.
That same year, in October, Schneiderman and George Soros hosted a fundraiser for Warren’s Senate campaign. Suggested contributions ranged from $1000 to $5000.
“New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has emerged as a skeptic of a proposed settlement between the states and big banks, will be introducing Warren at the event at the home of former candidate for Lieutenant Governor, Dennis Mehiel, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side,” Politico reported at the time.
Warren’s GOP challenger for her Senate seat, John Kingston, is already calling on her to return the money fundraised with the help of Schneiderman.
Is anyone in the media even going to ask the senators about this? You can be sure they would if they were Republicans.
