Dem Donors Feel Like Party Is Just Burning Their Money
Isn’t that what Democrats normally do with money?
Via The Hill:
Democratic donors stung by Hillary Clinton’s upset loss in the presidential race feel like they just set their money on fire.
The sore feelings are a huge problem for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018.
It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President-elect Donald Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments.
Many Democratic donors still feel burned by the party’s 2016 election losses and what they see as dysfunction in the DNC, which will elect a new leader in February.
Adding insult to the injury: The names of many donors were released in the WikiLeaks hack of Democratic emails, believed to have come at the hands of Russian intelligence. It was a mortifying development that has rattled some of the party’s big-money men and women.
“They’re tired,” one DNC official told The Hill. “They’re upset about the election, and there was significant trauma surrounding the Russians. They’re upset and they’re tired.”
Thank You The Hill and Zip.
But you can't blame the donors.
They didn't even know who they were giving their money to.
When you go to the track do you expect a refund when you bet on the wrong horse?
Oh yeah, that's right. They're having a Recount because the race was Fixed.
