Democratic National Committee Will Raise Funds in Mexico — and Seek Hillary’s Help, Too

Chairman Tom Perez is organizing events in Mexico City, while Mrs. Clinton apparently will play a role in D.C.

With the Democratic National Committee (DNC) struggling to raise money, Chairman Tom Perez is planning to hold multiple fundraisers in Mexico City this September.

The three fundraisers scheduled for the 28th, according to Bloomberg, will range from a student-centric event with a $25 minimum entry fee to a dinner at which tickets could go as high as $15,000.

Under Perez’s leadership, the DNC has  lagged far behind its Republican National Committee (RNC) counterpart in raising funds.

In June, the DNC raised $8.5 million — compared to the RNC’s $20.7 million.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel reports that the Republicans also broke a record in July.

“Our fundraising success is further evidence that the American people like the pro-growth agenda and economic record that the Trump administration and Republicans continue to deliver,” McDaniel said.

Meanwhile, Democrats have to travel to the heart of Mexico to try and raise funds.

There are currently 1.5 million American citizens residing in Mexico, according to the State Department.

Readers might be thinking: Is there any chance illegal donations might filter through?

It is, after all, illegal for foreigners to contribute to American political campaigns — but the DNC has it covered.

“The registration form on the DNC website requires that attendees be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enter passport or green card numbers,” Bloomberg noted.

In other words, they’re going to have to prove they’re American citizens. Hey, we’ve been told all along that asking for that kind of proof is super racist!

The DNC, aside from fundraising in Mexico, is seeking other desperate alternatives to kickstart donations.

Perez also sought support from Democrats in London in April of 2018.

Hillary Clinton will be hosting an event in Washington, D.C., this October. Participants can contribute at different levels — ranging from $15,000 to $50,000.

Who exactly is paying that kind of money to have dinner and a conversation with Hillary?

Just this past year, a speaking tour with the Clintons had its ticket prices drop to the single digits, while a Broadway play about Hillary’s election failure was canceled after it experienced “deplorable” ticket sales.

Perez also sought support from Democrats in London in April of 2018.

It’s surprising to see a party allegedly so consumed with foreign influence in American elections travel to Mexico in order to fund its campaigns.
