There’s something I need to share with you, Compatriots, and it’s probably going to anger you. It should probably anger everyone. Here it is:
Our opponent is bending campaign finance rules to their breaking point all so Wall Street fat cats and people like Walmart's Alice Walton can get away with giving hundreds of thousands of dollars in a single contribution to benefit the Clinton campaign.
You already know about the fundraiser Hillary Clinton held where a couple could contribute $353,000 to sit at a table with George Clooney.
That money doesn’t go directly to the Clinton campaign, it goes to something called the "Hillary Victory Fund" – another account that has raised almost $35 million.
Well, for MONTHS the Clinton campaign has been saying the primary purpose of that fund is to support the DNC and state parties. But that’s not even close to true.
According to the Hillary Victory Fund’s most recent FEC report, the vast majority of the money they spent in 2016 – $25 MILLION – went directly towards helping the Clinton campaign itself.
So, what can we do about it? We can either sit back and shrug our shoulders at yet another obscene injustice. Or, we can fight.
I say we fight.
So, this is distressing, but it’s probably to be expected.
The Clinton campaign has raised the majority of its money from people giving the maximum amount of money under the law and her super PACs have raised more than $15 million from Wall Street and the financial industry alone.
Do you believe we can change a corrupt system by taking its money? Bernie Sanders says no, and that’s the choice New Yorkers face on Tuesday.
The choice you face right now, is are you willing to contribute $2.70 to fight back and win this primary, the White House and take our country back from the billionaire class? You can do that here:
This is the most important week and a half of the campaign. How we respond in this moment could mean the difference between victory and defeat.
