Destitute National Committee Still Owes $15 Million to Union Bank

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) still has not paid back the $15 million loaned to it by the union-owned Amalgamated Bank of New York, according to its year-end campaign finance report.

The DNC took out two loans totaling $15 million from Amalgamated Bank in the months leading up to the November election.

The loans account for a large portion of the $21,471,157 of debts and obligations owed by the DNC, a number that is slightly more than five times greater than the $4,292,138 that the committee currently has in hand.

The DNC paid Amalgamated Bank more than $66,000 in loan interest and bank fees for the month of December, the records show.

The DNC established Amalgamated Bank as its “primary banking relationship” this past summer.

DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz hailed the transition, and noted the longstanding political and financial ties between the two organizations.

Amalgamated Bank, often described as “America’s Labor Bank,” is a national entity, the majority of which is owned by the politically active Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

    If we had a real president and a real attorney general, there would we be a RICO investigation of these shenanigans.

    The Unions loaned money to the Dems in exchange for favoritism after the election? Who knew?

    All will be forgiven and this too shall be put on the tab to be paid by the people that don’t pay enough! ie. working people!
