Nonsequitur: Hillary Clinton’s Donors

October 25, 2016

According to the Washington Post, the candidate for the Democratic Party received more than 20% of her campaign funding from 100 rich individuals or unions.  The top five donors:

  • Hedge Fund Manager,  S. Donald Sussman ($20.6 million);
  • Chicago Venture Capitalist, J.B. Pritzker and his wife, M.K. ($16.7 million);
  • Univision Chairman, Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl ($11.9 million);
  • Hedge Fund Manager, George Soros ($9.9 million); and
  • SlimFast Founder, S. Daniel Abraham ($9.7 million).

One of Bernie Sanders’ few criticisms of Clinton was her strong ties to Wall Street.  Looks like he was right.  Whether it’s the Clinton Foundation or the Clinton Campaign, Hillary Clinton has never hesitated to take money from those seeking influence.
