Whenever you want to know the answers to anything the Democrats do…just follow the money! It looks like those recent emails and documents released by WikiLeaks show that the DemocRATS were going to reward big donors with nice little appointments to federal positions. Not too shabby!
Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.
The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.
“The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party,” Boehm told The Daily Caller.
“That is unethical, if not illegal.”
The records, which WikiLeaks released along with nearly 20,000 hacked DNC emails and other documents on Friday, also expose one of the Beltway’s worst kept secrets: that wealthy politicos can often buy their way to presidential appointments.
This isn’t new though is it? Obama did the same thing when he ran for president.
The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political action committees.
The donors included the following from their respective states and DC:
New York: Martin Elling, Bob Pietrzak, Judith Gibbons, Chris Lowe, and Will Little
California: Lena Kennedy, Wayne Jordan, Shonda Scott, Elspeth Farmer, Michelle Kraus, Lisa Christensen, and Wade Randlett
Maryland: Sreedhar Potarazu, David Trone, and Bel Leong-Hong
North Carolina: Anita Jackson, Diane Robertson
Pennsylvania: Garey Ellis and David Shapira
Virginia: Shekar Narasimhan
Indiana: Nathaniel Lee
DC: Natalie Lichtenstein and Alfreda Robinson-Bennett
The donor spreadsheet was included in an email chain in which Jordan Kaplan, DNC’s national finance director, asked other officials to provide names of donors they wanted to propose for federal commissions.
Most of the donors listed on the spreadsheet have given to Clinton’s campaign. None gave to Sanders.
From all of this, we can say one thing for sure…Bernie Sanders was right when he said “the elections were rigged”! Thanks to the Romanian hacker Guccifer we now have some real data to prove it. Not that anyone will prosecute them, as long as Obama or Hillary are in office.
Next to David Shapira’s name there was also the reference to “USPS” – which most likely refered to US Postal Service. Isn’t it interesting to note, that David Shapiro, Executive Chairman of Giant Eagle, Inc., was nominated by Obama for a position for the Board of Governors for USPS last year? That just shows you, when you are a large donor for the DemocRATS you CAN actually buy positions for boards. It does “pay off” or should we say there is “pay back”?
The good news is, thanks to the DNC leaked emails by WikiLeaks, DNC chairwoman Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz was forced to resign on Sunday. She also got booed at a little breakfast as she spoke to the Florida Democratic delegation. She was not allowed to “gavel in” the Democratic National Convention, as expected.
The bad news is, unless Americans can elect Donald Trump as president in November, this kind of lawlessness of Hillary will continue, because Obama and Crooked Hillary are like “two peas in a pod”. A socialist pod.
In response to a New York Times story about Sanders’s defiance in the wake May’s unruly Democratic state convention in Nevada, Wasserman Schultz wrote:
“Every time they get caught doing something wrong, they use the tactic of blaming me. Not working this time.”…
Well Debbie, I guess it worked THIS time!
