DNC Emails Released by Wikileaks Reveal Democratic Party Insiders Promised Donors Access to Obama in Exchange for Cash

Obama-3

Wealthy potential donors to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) were courted with promises of access to the president, a Washington Post analysis of internal DNC emails released by WikiLeaks has found. The party insiders’ pitches appear to be in violation of White House policy, the newspaper notes.

On Monday, the Post reported:

The DNC emails show how the party has tried to leverage its greatest weapon—the president—as it entices wealthy backers to bankroll the convention and other needs. At times, DNC staffers used language in their pitches to donors that went beyond what lawyers said was permissible under a White House policy designed to prevent any perception that special interests have access to the president.

Top aides also get involved in wooing contributors, according to the emails. White House political director David Simas, for instance, met in May with a half-dozen top party financiers in Chicago, including Fred Eychaner, one of the top Democratic donors in the country, the documents show.

    • Wilhelm Reich wrote in 1933 in The Mass Psychology of Fascism that the only hope for mankind was for us to learn to quit electing sociopathic leaders. He obviously didn’t realize how difficult it was to keep them out of power.

  1. How many homeless people have access to Obama? Never mind, because even if they did get close enough to him to get a word to him about their plight, the criminalization of homelessness would continue. Sigh!
