Millionaire$ for Hillary - Hillary Super PAC gets BIG donor boost (from Hillary herself, too)

Hillary Clinton Super PAC gets BIG donor boost

By Theodore Schleifer, CNN

Updated 10:03 PM ET, Sat February 20, 2016

(CNN)Hillary Clinton's super PAC collected more than $9.5 million in January, more than half of which came from five wealthy donors.

Priorities USA Action earned a $3.5 million check from James Simons, a New York City hedge fund manager and philanthropist on Jan. 11, the group told the Federal Election Commission in a filing on Saturday.

Jay and Mary Pritzker, two members of a prominent and wealthy Chicago family, also gave a total of $2 million to the group just a few days before Clinton essentially tied Bernie Sanders in Iowa.

Slim-Fast founder Daniel Abraham gave $1 million.

Texas trial lawyer and prominent Democratic donor Steve Mostyn added $1 million.


Clinton herself added to that financial advantage over Sanders -- who does not have an authorized super PAC -- with a $14.9 million haul for her campaign.

She had nearly $33 million on hand as of Jan. 31. Priorities USA Action had nearly $45 million in cash on hand at the end of January.

The Wall Street & Corporate candidate calling herself a Democrat is scoring big on behalf of Moneyed Interests. yay!

It certainly helps if you can throw in $15 million of your own money to help seal the deal.



What a scam.

2. Fantastic!

This is the Game of Thrones .....if we want a different donor/ financial system, "We" must change the rules/ laws via Congress first. Today, we must utilize all resources...make no mistake, the opposition certainly is do just that.

4. Its sad that she literally says anything to get elected & people are buying it.

There isn't any stance she is taking now that she hasn't changed from 2-10 years ago.

3. We're the ones sold on the auction block: Democracy SOLD to the highest bidders.

Not if I can help it!

Time to flip the script on these hogs.

Sorry Hill and your 1% er pals, we will fight you with everything we have!

9. Where was our helping hand in the mid-terms?

Most Dems I know around here didn't even get a reminder nor even a voter guide from our party.

What's up with that?

Mid-term GOTV has got to be one of the biggest epic fails ever.

Local should be getting pressure from national to GOTV but seems both have better fish to fry.

10. The problem there is that too many "Democrats" in congress are third way & any progressive

liberal challengers are shut out by the DNC.

That's what we need to work on. Look at what & who these "Democrats" running really are and not assume they're for People and not Purchased by Big Money because of the (D) after their name.

We need to push the DNC to support liberal, populist challengers.

8. Good morning, RiverLover, very good OP. She is telling the voters through word and deed what

to expect should she win the WH. Stunning that anyone who is not going to be a
beneficiary would ever consider voting for her in the primary.

Unabated corruption and more war too...yay!

13. Thanks Jefferson! If only we weren't running a candidate so thoroughly entrenched in BigBusine$$

& an OP like this is even possible.

Fighting against her candidacy is truly like fighting ag republicans. But in many ways, its worse than that, because she is taking the money from those of status quo keep the rich rich & allow peons the non-existent Trickle Down with a wink & a nod. And then turning around & telling the voters what she feels they most want to hear for votes.

At least republicans state their BS outright. She hides her repub motives under the banner of "modern progressive".

Its fascinating, and disgusting to watch.

17. Yes and defines quite well why we have a class war within our Democratic Party.

Continued capitulation to money interests knowingly..that is what is pathetic
to me. We have a viable alternative who can begin this fight, for real this time,
not a half assed attempt with all the wink wink transactions with WS.

In solidarity, for the win.

15. Her personal funds came from the corporations and wall street.....

 

so even her personal donation was nothing more than a transfer of cash from big business.

After she loses again.

18. $15 mil of her own on the line - that's gotta sting.

I hope she puts in all her $$ and loses to Sanders. Ill-gotten gain shouldn't stay had.

Us $27 donors aren't betting big bucks like she is, so no worries.
