Pay To Play” Leaks show DNC asked White House to reward donors with slots on boards and commissions

The people on the list weren’t just hefty donors to the DNC; many also gave big money to Obama. The practice of rewarding big donors with federal positions dates back to the times of the founding fathers.

DNC National Finance Director Jordan Kaplan canvassed what appears to be the committee’s finance department – its fundraising office – for names of people (mainly donors) to reward with federal appointments on boards and commissions.

Amanda Moose, special assistant to the president for presidential personne gets an email without a subject line, Kaplan wrote just one line: “For your review,” seemingly referring to a previous conversation or exchange.

email from Comer to Kaplan shows that Moose wanted to set up a “20 minute conversation” with Kaplan.
