First, all billionaires don’t give to PACS.
Second, Bernie has PACS too (not Warren yet).
Third, some rich folks - just like you - may like a candidate for personal reasons. For instance a CD post recently was denouncing the “oligarchs” who support Buttigieg. The list of his billionaire donors included… “Notable backers: David Geffen, Mimi Haas, Jennifer Pritzker”. But if you dig into each one, you find that…
- David Geffen is married and openly gay. His contribution was $5600 (the maximum) in his and his husband’s name.
- Mimi (Miriam) Haas is a San Francisco socialite from the Levi’s fortune. Her contribution was $1000.
- Jennifer Pritzker is a transgender woman. Her contribution was $2800 (the maximum)
So, yeah, they may be billionaires but since they only give personal contributions (that are maxed by law), they don’t contribute to PACs, and they all have personal reasons to support the first openly gay presidential candidate… what is the problem? I mean, we have to be fair also!
