RNC Hanging On To Wynn's Donations

RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel told Fox News that donations made by its former finance chair Steve Wynn, who has been accused of sexually assaulting his employees, will only be returned if he's found guilty of wrongdoing. Why it matters: The RNC has been scrutinized for not taking immediate action after the Wall Street Journal reported dozens of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Wynn. And the RNC demanded the DNC return donations made by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein after he was accused of sexual assaulting a number of women.

Sounds like the GOP; they want to be certain he is a sexual predator before they pay him.

They should give them back, or at the very least give it to abused women's charities, there is no excuse.

I like the idea of giving the money to abused women's charities. Some Dems did that with Weinstein's money.

They'll give back the donations, not because it's the right thing to do. They'll do it because they'll pay a political price if they don't.

"The DNC quickly came under fire for not giving the full amount it had received from Weinstein over the years, and for donating only to political groups that seek to elect Democrats"

Dems aren't any better than GOP.

Ummm yeah no. The GOP elected a sexual predator to POTUS.

As I predicted. Its part of a larger pattern, one rule for Liberal Democrats and another for Conservative Republicans.
