The DNC has announced that they will return some of Harvey Weinstein’s donations — not back to Weinstein, but elsewhere:
The Democratic National Committe will donate $30k in Weinstein cash to EMILY’s List, Emerge America and Higher HeightsThe DNC

In other words, the Democratic Party will donate $30,000 of Weinstein's money to itself, in all but name. How pathetically cynical. https://t.co/gHntxQ3iuK

And none of the money he bundled, just that donated in his own name.

And they’re not really sending the money away never to be seen again:
Wait … these are all Democratically aligned groups. The DNC is responding to the Weinstein scandal by just shifting his donations around? https://t.co/1rgJnLIYqZ

For Dems, the money won’t land far from “home” at all:

This is absurd. They're just funneling the money to other Democratic apparatuses https://t.co/70h13orvfX

Shifting money from one pocket to the other in the same pants.

I want people to understand these are all left-wing political organizations.
This is gross. I hope the MSM calls them out on it. https://t.co/aDxEj3xqKU

Maybe they should donate to charities that support victims of sexual assault and harassment, not to Democrat-allied political orgs.

The DNC is donating Weinstein's donations to them to a group that donates to Democrats https://t.co/aC9mJ1caPd
— Joe Perticone (@JoePerticone) October 6, 2017
Maybe the DNC learned that from watching how things work elsewhere:
This reminds me of public funding to Planned Parenthood who then donates it to Dem candidates and causes.
About as disingenuous as it gets. https://t.co/3p7yF3iEqi
