The DNC is not only financially broke, but morally bankrupt as well.
The Democrat National Committee is fundraising off the mass shooting in Florida which left 17 people dead.
Never let a crisis go to waste, right?
On Thursday, the DNC blasted out an email, signed by DNC Chair Tom Perez asking people to sign a petition, which states, “Tell Congress: Take Action to Prevent Gun Violence”.
Any individual who fills out their name, email address and zip code is prompted to a donation page asking for money.
“Chip in to help Democrats take on the gun lobby” is splashed in big blue letters at the top of the donation page.
“We’re counting on you to help take on the gun lobby and elect Democrats who have the courage to address the epidemic of gun violence. Chip in now.”
Donations start at $10 and go up to $2,000. There is also a blank box where a person can choose the amount they would like to contribute. (screenshot below)
Part of the email signed by Tom Perez reads (via Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller):
“Yesterday afternoon, a 19-year-old with a weapon of war walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and opened fire, killing 17 people and injuring many others,” Perez writes.
“We have seen this happen too many times. This is not normal. This is not acceptable. This is not inevitable. It’s long past time for our leaders to stop pretending we are helpless in the face of such tragedy.”
The Democrats have no shame.
On Thursday, former DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz turned a Florida shooting vigil into a political rally.
