DNC fundraises off Supreme Court ruling, again

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 Court’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.

“It’s just the latest step we’ve made in recent years toward a more equal country where people aren’t treated differently because of who they love,” she wrote of the court’s decision on DOMA in an email to supporters Wednesday. “This progress wouldn’t have happened without the hard work of activists and people like you — and we won’t finish the fight for equality unless we all step up and finish it.”
