Hillary Campaign Excited To Take Money From Lobbyists And PACs

Just 3 long, long days ago, when she met “voters” in Iowa

(UK Guardian) Clinton laid out four campaign planks: 1) revitalizing economy 2) supporting families 3) getting dirty $$ out of politics 4) defending against threats seen and unseen

Clinton said she would support a constitutional amendment to eliminate dark money from US politics.

Well, that’s for Other People, you know

(Huffington Post) Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign will accept donations from lobbyists and political action committees, a difference in policy from the man she’s hoping to replace, President Barack Obama.

Of course, putting the policy into practice was something completely different for Team Obama, which certainly took money from both, which even the Huff Post had to admit later in the article.

The Clinton campaign confirmed that there would be no prohibition on such donations, after The Huffington Post was tipped off by two lobbyists supportive of the former secretary of state’s run for the White House.

“Hillary Clinton has a long history of taking on tough fights against special interests, whether or not they’re donors to her campaigns,” said Jesse Ferguson, a spokesman for the campaign. “She strongly supports campaign finance reform and has voted for tough lobbying reform, but as long as Republican groups and candidates are going to spend millions attacking Hillary, we need the resources to fight back.”

Will Hillary require every PAC and lobbyist to publish who the donations came from, in order to stop that “dark money”? Ha! Made myself laugh.

And we all know that most Democrats/Liberals/Progressives will excuse Hillary when she takes “dark money”, just like they’ll excuse her for using tons of fossil fuels even as she (supposedly) campaigns against “climate change”.
