DNC fundraises off Supreme Court ruling, again
The Democratic National Committee has turned the most recent Supreme Court rulings into money-making opportunities.
Within an hour of the Supreme Courtâ€™s ruling Wednesday to strike down a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the DNC sent out a petition and fundraising email signed by DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
â€œItâ€™s just the latest step weâ€™ve made in recent years toward a more equal country where people arenâ€™t treated differently because of who they love,â€ she wrote of the courtâ€™s decision on DOMA in an email to supporters Wednesday. â€œThis progress wouldnâ€™t have happened without the hard work of activists and people like you â€” and we wonâ€™t finish the fight for equality unless we all step up and finish it.”
