As of the end of the 2016 election cycle, Karen and her firm Progressive Connections had been paid more than $600,000 in campaign funds from the committee for the running the slate mailers since 2006, the Washington Free Beacon previously reported.
Karen received another $108,862 in payments from her mother’s campaign committee during the 2018 election cycle, FEC filings show. The committee additionally reported that it still owes $94,000to Karen. Once the debt is paid off, Karen will have received more than $200,000 in payments from the committee as marked at the end of the midterm cycle.
The campaign was paid more than $200,000 from the likes of Democratic candidates and judges in California during the most recent campaign cycle.
Gavin Newsom, who was elected governor of California, gave the Waters campaign $27,000 from his own campaign to appear on the slate mailer while Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s campaign added $27,000in slate mailer payments. Newsom and Boxer both previously paid to appear to be on the slate mailers in past elections.
This has long been the business plan of the left. While the left complains about the GOP putting wealthy people in positions of power, the Dems actually become wealthy by being a public servant. Talk about hypocrisy.
