One of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton‘s recurring campaign promises was that she would “work to curb the outsized influence of big money in American politics, shine a light on secret spending, and fight to make our democracy work for everyone – not just the wealthy and well-connected.”
Wait … wasn’t Clinton the definition of a bought-and-paid-for politician? Yes. She was.
And didn’t the “outsized influence” of big money basically steal the Democratic presidential nomination away from Bernie Sanders? Yes, it did.
