Ex-Bernie Staffer Sounds Off on New Hillary PAC: ‘This Is Nothing But a Money-Grab’


Earlier this week, it was reported that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was getting ready to launch a new political group. The political action committee — set to be called Onward Together in a play on her ‘Stronger Together’ campaign slogan — will “fund organizations working on the resistance to President Donald Trump’s agenda.”

Well, one person who used to work for Clinton’s Democratic primary opponent thinks this is all about the cash for the former Secretary of State.

Appearing on Fox News today, ex-Bernie Sanders staffer Tezlyn Figaro took issue with the one-time First Lady stating that she was part of the Resistance.

“The only thing that Hillary Clinton is resisting is the ability to sit down — refusing to sit down,” she said. “This is nothing but a money-grab to continue to get donors to donate money to a PAC that’s ineffective.”

She went on to note that voters delivered a message in both 2008 and last year that they’re ready to move on from Clinton.

“They have simply regifted an old gift that no one wanted at Christmas and decided to put a new bow on it,” Figaro stated.

Besides the reports of Clinton’s upcoming PAC, she’s also been in the news lately over an interview she gave earlier this week where she placed much of the blame for her election loss on FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference.
