DNC and Schumer Are Not Giving Back Their Weinstein Money
UPDATE: Under pressure, the DNC announced that it would send a tenth of its Weinstein money to “groups that elect women,” and Clinton said she will donate an equivalent amount of her Weinstein money to charity.
The Democratic National Committee and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are not making overtures to return their donations from accused sexual harasser Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein has been fired by the Weinstein Company, which he started with his brother, as his entire world falls apart in Hollywood. The super-producer is the latest establishment Democrat target of left-wing progressive outrage.
A super PAC sent me details on the money not being returned:
“Weinstein has given at least $246,290 to the DNC since 1994
- Weinstein has donated at least $23,200 to the DCCC since 1993
- During her 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton received at least $5,400 from Weinstein
- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has been the recipient of at least $16,200 in campaign donations from Weinstein dating back to 1997
- Senator Al Franken and his PAC have gotten campaign cash from Weinstein totaling at least $19,800 since 2006″
Democratic political aspirant Ashley Judd is one of Weinstein’s accusers.
