Hillary Brings Goldman Sachs Lobbyist and Fundraiser to Dem Debate

10:10 PM, Feb 04, 2016 | By SHOSHANA WEISSMANN

Hillary Clinton supporters attended the Democratic debate in full force.

Here is a picture one of her fundraisers, former governor Howard Dean and Steve Elmendorf—a Goldman Sachs lobbyist.

Yahoo's Michael Isikoff notes Elmendorf is a "key player" in her campaign. Elmendorf runs Subject Matter, "a go-to Democratic lobbying firm for corporate interests, raking more than $10 million in fees last year." Its clients include Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Verizon, and Monsanto.

This isn't an ideal image for Clinton, who has been fighting her ties to Wall Street. Just yesterday, Anderson Cooper asked Clinton, "did you have to be paid $675,000" for speeches to Goldman Sachs. She replied, "That's what they offered."

1. "Its clients include Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Verizon, and Monsanto. "

Wow.... he represents 4 of the most vile corporations in the history of human kind. How the HELL does Elmendorf sleep at night?

Silly question of course, since he probably represents some big pharma company too, and they keep him well stocked with sleeping pills.

Edit: Never mind, it's the Weekly Standard.
