Please welcome the new DNC Finance Chair
Mouseboy must really really be all over this... How many trucks of roses this time?
The Democratic National Committee’s new finance chair, Chris Korge, affirmed his commitment to neutrality in the presidential primary in response to scrutiny of past comments criticizing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and a donation to the campaign of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
At issue are comments Korge has made about Sanders prior to accepting the job at the DNC. He retweeted a message in December calling Sanders “dangerous to the future of the Democratic Party.”
During the 2016 primary, Korge was a major donor and bundler for Hillary Clinton, and he repeatedly blasted Sanders on social media.
For example, in March 2016, Korge tweeted, “The only Bern the middle class will feel from Bernie is the pain from all the tax increases.”
Korge also contributed $2,700 to Sen. Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign in late January.
In addition, in 2000, a former law partner of Korge’s sued him for cheating him on his share of the firm’s profits. The former partner also accused Korge of using funds from their firm to cover personal expenses, including the costs of a DNC fundraiser. Korge denied wrongdoing and settled with the former partner out of court.
(shush. In the tags is BOHICA. An outstanding member of ToP. this is not about him, but now you should google it... it's an acronym. shush.)
