“Clinton criticizes lax campaign finance laws between two L.A.-area fundraisers”

Seema Mehta for the LAT:

between attending two Los Angeles-area fundraisers, Democratic front-runnerHillary Clinton railed against the laxness of campaign finance laws on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

“We have to raise money. I raise a lot of money at events and I raise a lot of money online, but there should not be these huge loopholes for corporations and billionaires to just put as much money as they want to and not even have to tell you who it comes from or really disclose very much at all,” Clinton told Kimmel, arguing that Citizens United, the Supreme Court decision that weakened campaign finance laws, must be overturned. “It is wrong.”

Clinton’s position was not new, but her statement occurred the same day that she headlined fundraisers in Santa Monica and Hollywood, and the same day Politico reported that a couple could buy seats at the head table at a Clinton Bay Area fundraiser next month alongside George and Amal Clooney by contributing or raising $353,400 for various Democratic groups.
