DNC President To Hold A Fundraising Event In … Wait For It…. Mexico!

By

DNC President Tom Perez will be hosting a fundraising event in Mexico City with ticket prices ranging from $25 to $15,000.

Don’t you find it odd that Democrats are going to a foreign country to fundraise? This could be a sign of the desperation for the Dems considering the RNC is setting records with their cash haul. 

From Bloomberg:

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez plans to hold party fundraising events with the American expatriate community in Mexico City next month.

Perez will participate in three events in the Mexican capital on Sept. 28, according to invitations obtained by Bloomberg News. The events range from happy hour drinks with a $25 minimum student entry to a dinner where tickets range from $1,000 to $15,000.

The registration form on the DNC website require that attendees be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enter passport or green card numbers. It is illegal for foreigners to contribute to American political campaigns. Evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 election aimed at benefiting Donald Trump has been a persistent drag on his presidency.

DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa confirmed that Perez will be holding the events.
