WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a new video entitled "Democrats To DNC: Give Up The Harvey Weinstein Cash." To date, the Democrat National Committee (DNC) has refused to give up the Weinstein donations, only shuffling a small fraction of the dirty Weinstein cash to other Democratic groups. This video highlights Democratic lawmakers calling on the DNC to return or donate all of Weinstein's $300,000.
The DNC Won't Return Its $300,000 From Harvey Weinstein
Even Democratic Lawmakers Believe This is Wrong
Reporter: "And what about the money? Are you supportive of the DNC giving it back, giving it to charities?"
Rep. Maxine Waters: "Oh yeah, oh yes they should give it back to them because, first of all, they may not have known what was going on. But the fact that they now know, they ought to give him the money back."
Reporter: "Excuse me, Congressman Ellison?"
Rep. Keith Ellison: "Yeah?"
Reporter: "Will the DNC return all of its contributions from Harvey Weinstein?"
Congressman Keith Ellison: "I don't have any comments for you right now. I don't know you, and I don't take questions like this."
Sen. Richard Blumenthal: "I think any of us who received donations from him should do the same."
Reporter to DNC Chair Tom Perez: "Just wondering if the DNC is going to return its contributions from Harvey Weinstein?"
Reporter to DNC Chair Tom Perez: "You have a nice weekend, sir."
Sen. Chris Murphy: "I mean this is a pretty bad guy who did some really awful things."
Rep. Maxine Waters: "It is not to be accepted by us."
Sen. Chris Murphy: "People that took money from him should probably give it back."
Dear DNC, Every Democrat Has Returned The Dirty Money
