Senior Clinton Aides Have Attended Super PAC Events

- October 11, 2015

Clinton Campaign Chairman Jon Podesta Was The Featured Speaker At The Pro-Clinton Super PAC - Priorities USA. “The chairman of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign will meet with a group of prospective donors to the ‘super PAC’ supporting her in New York City this week, according to an invitation to the event. John Podesta will be the featured speaker at the event at the Manhattan home of Bernard Schwartz, a longtime supporter of Mrs. Clinton.” (Maggie Haberman, “John Podesta, Head Of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign, To Speak At ‘Super PAC’ Event,” The New York Times’ First Draft, 9/14/15)

  • Bill Clinton “Will Likely Begin To Raise Money” For The Priorities USA Super PAC. “But some decisions have been made: Bill won’t start flying into Des Moines or Manchester anytime soon, for example. In addition to raising money, he will likely slowly start ramping up his own political travel, seeking to energize Democrats beyond the early-voting states — particularly in places like West Virginia, where the local party infrastructure has fallen on hard times, and where her campaign has signed an agreement to help raise money for state Democrats. And, say Democrats helping craft the pro-Clinton fundraising strategy, he will likely begin to raise money for Priorities USA — though no specific plans have been made on this front, either.” (Gabriel Debenedetti, “Bill Clinton’s Mission Creep,” Politico, 10/2/15)

Clinton’s “Embrace Of The Super PAC Phenomenon Has Been Uneasy At Times” As She Rails Against Super PACs On The Campaign Trail. “Mrs. Clinton’s embrace of the super PAC phenomenon has been uneasy at times. While she recognizes the need to raise money for the one supporting her, she has expressed shock to her advisers at the fund-raising that former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin did for their supportive super PACs before they became official candidates.” (Maggie Haberman, “John Podesta, Head Of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign, To Speak At ‘Super PAC’ Event,” The New York Times’ First Draft, 9/14/15)

  • Clinton Is “Deeply Critical Of The Supreme Court Decision That Helped Pave The Way For The Current Big-Money Era Of Unlimited Donations To Outside Groups.” “And she has been deeply critical of the Supreme Court decision that helped pave the way for the current big-money era of unlimited donations to outside groups.” (Maggie Haberman, “John Podesta, Head Of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign, To Speak At ‘Super PAC’ Event,” The New York Times’ First Draft, 9/14/15)
