New Ad Blasts DNC for Keeping Harvey Weinstein’s Money

Maxine Waters, Chris Murphy, and Richard Blumenthal have all said the DNC should return Harvey Weinstein's money.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is out with a new digital ad blasting the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for not returning donations that it received from serial sexual assaulter Harvey Weinstein.

Weinstein has donated $300,000 to the DNC, but the DNC has only donated $30,000 of that money, and to PACs that align with Democrats.

The ad begins with the following text appearing on the screen:

“The DNC won’t return its $300,000 from Harvey Weinstein”

“Even Democratic lawmakers believe this is wrong”

Then a clip of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is played calling on the DNC to return the money that Weinstein donated to the DNC.

“Oh yeah, oh yes, they should give it back to him because, first of all, they may not have known what was going on. But the fact that they now know, they ought to give him the money back,” Waters told MSNBC.

Then, there is a clip of DNC Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) dodging a question about whether the DNC will return Weinstein’s money.

The ad then plays clips of Sens. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Richard Blumenthal; (D-CT) both saying the DNC should return the money Weinstein has donated.

“Dear DNC, every Democrat has returned the dirty money,” appears on the screen. “Why won’t you?”
