In a move that drips with hypocrisy, the Democrat National Committee tabled a resolution Saturday calling on the party to reinstate a ban on corporate donations and on federal corporate lobbyists from serving as at-large members of the DNC. This stands in direct opposition to the over-the-top rhetoric spewed during the 2016 General Election about Democrats opposition to the Citizens United SCOTUS ruling.
Ironically, Christine Pelosi, daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi - who benefits handsomely from big corporate donations, put forward the proposal to revive a ban that former Pres. Obama put into place in 2008.
So, throughout the years-long, mind-numbing presidential campaign of 2016 we heard - ad nauseum - from Democrats decrying the evils of corporate big money donations in politics. They painted these donations as the centerpiece of the RNC funding apparatus.
Now, the first chance they get to walk the walk, in establishing the DNC platform going forward from the 2016 General Election, they not only ignore what they preached to everyone else about the evils of corporate influence in politics, they green-light it for themselves.
To wit, anyone still believing anything these political reprobates have to say is either terminally stupid or just as disingenuous as their elected counterparts.
