Carol Seiu-Porter gets her share of funding from unions with an international presence, but a new group has risen abruptly to the top of her donor list and it’s not a Union. J Street PAC, a self proclaimed pro-Israel group, has produced donors to Carol to the tune of $16,500.00, and endorsed her as well.
J Street is self-proclaimed for several reasons. They show their "support" for Israel by fighting sanctions against Iran and Hamas. Their idea of peace is to lobby against Isreal’s right to self defense when attacked; as in, firing back prevents peace, just sit there and take it. And J Street has been heavily funded by the anti-Israeli Soros family fortune, and other generous foreign donors including prominent Arab’s, their representatives, attaches, consultants, and hangers-on.
They do have US donors, but the democrats have made it clear that this no longer matters, nor does any existing regulation to separate foreign and domestic donations.
Using their rules Carol just took another $16,000.00 in "foreign contributions" for her "local election." Contributions from people who it can be argued, don’t care all that much for our ally Israel.
