12. Question. Although the tweet you linked to has an ActBlue link that gives all the donation to


Scholten, it looks from the image of the email posted as if the email link for donations gives half the money donated that way to Harris. Is that correct?

Editing to add that I'm asking because when Harris asked for donations for Stacey Abrams when Abrams was contesting the 2018 election, Harris posted her own link, instead of Abrams' ActBlue link, and Harris's own link split the donations between Harris and Abrams by default, though if people noticed the fine print they could change the setting to adjust how much if any would go to Harris.

I'm wondering, too, how standard it is for politicians asking supporters to donate to other politicians to take part of the donation for themselves. Maybe it is a very common practice and I just hadn't heard about it before.

Editing again to add that Tal Kopan, the SF Chronicle reporter who posted that fundraising email from the Harris campaign that split the Scholten donation with Harris, mentioned in her next tweet that Cory Booker has also sent out a fundraiising email for Scholten:

She didn't post an image of Booker's email, though.

I checked Twitter, couldn't find anyone else posting an image of that email from Booker, but did see a tweet from Booker, which links to an ActBlue page giving all the donations to Scholten.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
