Democrats are moving swiftly to build a large network to push back against voter identification laws after President Donald Trump claimed illegal immigrants gave Hillary Clinton the edge in the popular vote and called for a “major investigation” into potential voter fraud.
The top lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has joined the board of a major Democratic Super PAC funded by liberal billionaire George Soros to lead its efforts against state voting laws.
Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta personally thanked high-dollar donors to a Democratic Super PAC with which the campaign is legally prohibited from coordinating, according to an internal campaign memo.
Liberal billionaire George Soros added a $2.5 million donation to a pro-Clinton super PAC in August, according to filings released by the Federal Election Commission.
With the Republican field winnowing and wealthy Democratic donors writing massive checks, Hillary Clinton now boasts the richest Super PAC of any presidential candidate.
Two pro-Hilary Clinton groups will be joining forces to launch a multi-million dollar campaign in hopes of energizing young female voters to vote against Republican “extremism” in the 2016 presidential election.
Guy Cecil, who recently joined super PAC Priorities USA Action and is expected to lead its effort to raise millions in support of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, has contributed up to $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
