DNC’s Perez covered debt of rival-turned-supporter after chairmanship race

This is a corrupt bargain. But would we expect anything less from the DNC?

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez transferred $22,270 to key backer Jaime Harrison in March, a month after Harrison dropped out of the race for DNC chair and threw his support to Perez two days ahead of the vote.

The contribution from Perez’s campaign committee, which was disclosed in an IRS filing by Harrison’s campaign, wiped out the debt Harrison had accrued in the race to lead the DNC. He was said to have had the third-highest number of supporters when he dropped out of the race and endorsed Perez, who went on to win the chairmanship by a 35-vote margin out of 435.
