Via JMG: Money Rolls In For Hillary After Benghazi Hearing


The Clinton campaign broke their own fundraising record last night immediately upon the conclusion of Benghazi hearing farce. The Hill reports:
Clinton’s director of communications, Jennifer Palmieri, told a gaggle of reporters after her boss’s speech to a Democratic National Committee women’s forum Friday morning that Clinton had her best hour of online fundraising during the entire campaign so far. The record money poured in between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. Thursday, just after the daylong hearing on the 2012 Benghazi attacks had ended, Palmieri said. “People were apparently paying attention and were moved by it [the Benghazi hearing],” Palmieri said, without specifying a dollar figure for the amount of money raised. Asked whether the Clinton campaign team had been using the former secretary of State’s Benghazi testimony to solicit cash on Thursday night, Palmieri said it had not. “We had, like, a hashtag ‘I’m with her’, and show you’re with her, show you’re staying with Hillary … but we didn’t ask for money.”
