The NRCC is calling on its Democratic counterpart to return money it received from a mega-donor accused of serial sexual harassment.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) released a new ad calling on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to return the money they have received from Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein, who has contributed a considerable amount to Democratic candidates and committees through the years, is accused of serial sexual harassment.
The NRCC ad titled, “Give It Back,” starts off by playing clips from news reports about Democrats scrambling to give back donations they had received from Weinstein.
Then the ad plays a clip of CNN’s Jake Tapper interviewing Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) on “State of the Union.”
In the clip, Tapper points out to Murphy that the DCCC, along with the Democratic National Committee (DNC), have not returned the donations they received from Weinstein.
“This was a high profile individual who did some truly awful things, and people who took money from him should probably give it back,” Murphy told Tapper.
The ad concludes with the following text appears on screen: “Tell the DCCC to give the money back.”
“In light of these allegations, it’s time for Democrats to return Harvey Weinstein’s dirty money,” NRCC spokesman Matt Gorman told The Hill. “The DCCC’s silence is unconscionable and they cannot excuse years of abuse by one of their donors.”
