Harvey Weinstein was a top bundler for Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, but the campaign hasn’t said they will be returning that money.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign received a considerable amount of money during the 2016 campaign from disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein but has not said whether they will be returning that money in the wake of several sexual harassment allegations against Weinstein.
Weinstein who has been described as a Democratic ‘mega-donor,’ donated $17,300 to Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2106 according to the Center For Responsive Politics. He also threw a fundraiser for Clinton at his Manhattan home last year.
On top of Weinstein’s personal contributions to Clinton’s campaign, the disgraced Hollywood producer was also a ‘Hillblazer,’ for the campaign. The term ‘Hillblazer,’ was used by the campaign to describe people who raised at least $100,000 for Clinton’s campaign.
Other Democrats that Weinstein had donated to, such as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, have decided to donate the money to charities.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign joins the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in staying silent on whether they will return the donations from Weinstein.
The Clinton campaign is flush with cash. According to Federal Election Commission, the Clinton’s campaign has $986,363.83 cash on hand. So why haven’t they returned the donations from a man accused of sexual assault, something Hillary Clinton herself has often spoken out against?
