Redistribute the Donations! Bernie Sanders Uses National Email List to Fundraise for the “Squad”


Self-proclaimed democratic socialist Bernie Sanders is definitely living up to his political name.

In an email sent to his own campaign’s national email list, Sanders begged his supporters to donate to the “squad,” urging them to split their donations 3 ways.

Specifically, Sanders pushed for a donation of $5 to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib.

The members of the squad are facing tough reelection campaigns. They’re either facing primary challengers or highly competitive Republican candidates in the general election.

Sanders’ plea comes days after he officially suspended his campaign for president.

But not every Bernie supporter was happy with the email to his national campaign list.

Many people took to social media to express their disgust that Sanders would essentially ask his supporters to redistribute their donations amid the COVID-19 crisis.
