Biggest Liberal ‘Super PAC’ to Fund Possible Clinton Bid

The largest liberal “super PAC” in the country has begun raising money to elect Hillary Rodham Clinton president, formally aligning itself with her undeclared presidential ambitions more than two years away from the election.

(…)

The move marks perhaps the earliest-ever start to big-dollar fund-raising in support of a nonincumbent presidential candidate, providing a fund-raising portal for wealthy Clinton supporters eager to help her White House prospects — and to the legions of others eager to ingratiate themselves with Mrs. Clinton and her inner circle.

Clinton hasn’t declared herself a candidate yet, and they’re already gathering a hoard of cash. The part we hate most about the Republican party, the distorting influence of big donors, is coming to the Democratic party. Fan-fucking-tastic.

  1. Blimey! Is it that time already?

  2. No, but that doesn’t stop em.

  3. Coming to the Democratic party? I’m afraid you misapprehend how the system works. Both major parties (and as many of the minor parties as are able) have been doing this for as long as they’ve been political parties. It may not have been via PACs, but it was definitely done by kingmakers, local party machines, and people in power.

    It’s not that the system is newly corrupt. It’s just the corruption is visible in new ways.
