WikiLeaks DNC Emails Reveal Huge Difference Between Democrats and Republicans
The WikiLeaks release of DNC emails spelled the end of Debbie Wasserman Schultz as Democratic Party chair.
They leaks also revealed the deep hypocrisy of the Democrats regarding racism and bigotry.
This article at The Daily Caller explores the DNC WikiLeaks and pinpoints how what the Democrats are doing behind closed doors is much more unethical than how the Republicans handles quid pro quo arrangements with financial supporters:
Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.
The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.
“The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party,” Boehm told The Daily Caller.
“That is unethical, if not illegal.”
The records, which WikiLeaks released along with nearly 20,000 hacked DNC emails and other documents on Friday, also expose one of the Beltway’s worst kept secrets: that wealthy politicos can often buy their way to presidential appointments.
Without a doubt, the Republicans also reward their financial supporters with political appointments.
However, the Democrats, as the WikiLeaks reveal, operate a Pay to Play scheme. You pay and support our campaigns, and you get a plumb appointment. Guaranteed.
Plus what makes the Democrats’ practice of doing this even more appalling is that they campaign on a platform of campaign reform and purity… that they are above the influence of money in politics.
Finally, the one huge difference is this:
We long had the feeling that both Democrats and Republicans played this insiders game.
Now we have the proof of the level of corruption played inside the Democratic Party.
