Democrats love to talk about dark money in politics, but they’re the worst offenders. Corruption in American political life is largely a Democratic phenomenon.
That was confirmed today with the news that Joe Biden’s presidential campaign just set an all-time record in “dark money” political donations, over 145 MILLION dollars worth.
The Washington Examiner reports:
President Biden received a record-breaking amount of donations from “dark money” donors during the 2020 election cycle, despite his party’s long-held belief that such money should be more severely regulated.
While Democrats have in the past proposed bans to the type of dark money donations, the effort to unseat Trump had them welcoming the funds in 2020.
“We weren’t going to unilaterally disarm against Trump and the right-wing forces that enabled him,” said Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil, whose super political action committee was designated as the preferred committee for outside spending.
Once again, the Democrats are hypocrites. They scream about “corporate interests” and “campaign finance reform” and then suck up to big tech corporations and run the dirtiest campaign finance operation in history.
It’s rules for thee, not for me. Remember this when Democrats start complaining about the few donors Republicans have left.
