Given the fact that the DNC and the DCCC are hurting for cash, this makes no sense. Why have they recently paid nearly $1 million dollars to Hillary Clinton’s resistance group for supposed list acquisition?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Cash-Strapped DNC, DCCC Pay Hillary Clinton’s ‘Resistance’ Group Nearly $900,000 Combined for List Acquisitions
The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) have combined to pay Hillary Clinton’s “resistance” group nearly $900,000 for list acquisitions, Federal Election Commission filings show.
The DNC, which is in the midst of facing financial hardships, conjured up $300,000 on Jan. 8 to pay Onward Together, Clinton’s group, for “list acquisition,” according to the FEC filings. The payment was made to Clinton’s organization as state Democratic parties were waiting on $10 million in funding for rebuilding efforts that was initially promised last July…
The DCCC also paid hundreds of thousands to Clinton’s “resistance” group for “generic committee list rental” between mid-December and late January.
On Dec. 12, the DCCC disbursed $286,689.34 to Onward Together for the list rentals. In January, two more payments were made to Clinton’s group in the amounts of $139,242.20 and $145,882.40 for the rentals.
This does not look right. Hillary isn’t running and other state campaigns could surely use those funds right now for the midterms. Why is all this cash going to Hillary’s group?
