Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Bernie Sanders: George Clooney’s Clinton Fundraiser ‘Obscene’

If you’re still on the fence about whether Hillary is a woman of the people (as long as those people are extraordinarily rich and powerful), here’s what you’ve been waiting for.

Bernie Sanders spoke about campaign finance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, referring to George Clooney’s upcoming fundraiser for Hillary Clinton as “obscene.” Guests at the April 15 event will pay $353,400 for two seats at the head table with her majesty, Clooney, and his wife Amal. The next night, the Clooneys will host a $33,400 per person fundraiser for Clinton at the couple’s Los Angeles home.

“It is obscene that Secretary Clinton keeps going to big-money people to fund her campaign,” Sanders argued. “I have a lot of respect for George Clooney. He’s a great actor. I like him. But this is the problem with American politics. Big money is dominating our political system. And my supporters and I are trying to move as far away from that as we can.”

“It’s not only this Clooney event,” Bernie explained on CNN. “It is the fact that Clinton has now raised well over $15 million from Wall Street for her super-PAC, and millions more from the fossil fuel industry, and from the drug companies.”

Sanders says he is proud that donations to his campaign average around $27 per person. Relying on small donations rather than Super-PACs is a fundamental part of his ideology.
