DNC finance chairman Henry R. Munoz III under fire for raising money for Hillary Clinton.
Democratic National Committee’s finance chairman Henry R. Munoz III is under fire for raising money for Hillary Clinton.
From Fox Latino:
The Democratic National Committee’s finance chairman is apparently in violation of his own party’s rules after it was revealed that he is helping raise money for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Henry R. Muñoz III, a former fundraiser for President Barack Obama and the current DNC finance chairman, is helping organize a fundraiser for Clinton’s presidential campaign this week in San Antonio, Texas – a violation of party rules that stipulate that officers remain neutral in presidential primaries, Democratic operative Gilberto Ocañas and Bexar County Democratic Party Chairman Manuel Medina told Politico.
"I know he's made a few calls to raise money. He's certainly taking it upon himself to make tomorrow's fundraiser a success," Medina said.
Munoz certainly is in violation of DNC rules which state: "The chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and even-handedness during the Democratic Party presidential nominating process."
Then again, when have the rules ever mattered to this current crop of leftist liberal Democrats.
"The DNC is committed to impartiality in the presidential primary process. We take any situations that could violate our party's rules very seriously.
"Our officers and staff are made aware of our party's policy on remaining impartial in the presidential nominating process and understand that this is a requirement of their continued service to the party," a DNC spokesperson, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said.
"Even the DNC seems to be violating its own rules to pave the way for Hillary Clinton’s coronation. Democrats’ failure to play by the rules further proves they can’t be trusted," Ruth Guerra, an RNC spokeswoman, said.
