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.”

Feel the Bern!

A presidential campaign should be about the issues. Bernie's been right on the issues early and often.1962: As the Civil Rights Movement grew, Bernie led a sit-in to desegregate off-campus student housing at the University of Chicago1983: In the midst of public vitriol against gay rights, Bernie endorsed the first Gay Pride Day in Burlington, Vermont, calling it a civil rights issue1991: In his first term in Congress, Bernie voted to oppose the federal death penalty, and has opposed the death penalty his whole career1993: President Clinton promised hundreds of thousands of new jobs from NAFTA, but Bernie voted to protect American jobs by opposing the trade agreement.1996: Bernie voted against the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act in order to stand up for legal rights of LGBT Americans.1999: While Congress rushed to deregulate Wall Street, promising new wealth for the country, Bernie opposed the effort, correctly predicting that it would lead to further concentration of power in our country2001: Bernie opposed the Patriot Act in spite of an overwhelming majority in favor of passing the bill that reduced civil liberties.2003: While President Bush and Congress rushed the country to war with Iraq, Bernie Sanders opposed the war, saying it would result in anti-Americanism, instability, and more terrorismAnd Bernie has always stood up for working families against the interests of the wealthy.
