Democratic National Committee vice chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) ignored questions on the millions of dollars the party has paid two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her campaign's email lists.
The questions, asked by a tracker from conservative group America Rising, came as Ellison was leaving an event in his home state of Minnesota.
"Are you disappointed that the Democrats are paying millions of dollars for Hillary Clinton’s email list?" Ellison was asked. "Do you have any opinion on the fact that Hillary Clinton is charging millions of dollars for her email list?"
The DNC, which is millions of dollars in debt, has agreed to pay $1.65 million to Clinton's new group, Onward Together, for access to its email list and other voter data, leading some in the party to call for a refund from Clinton. They want her to donate access to the lists to the DNC and return the money she's already been paid.
Ellison is yet to comment on the DNC's relationship with Onward Together.
He supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) in his primary fight with Clinton, and was brought on at the DNC to help bridge the gap between the establishment and the many voters who feel that the primary was "rigged" for Clinton.
