Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announces the formation of a nonprofit organization which aims to encourage citizens to “Resist, insist, persist, enlist.”
The former secretary of state unveiled her Onward Together 501(c)(4) non-profit via Twitter, claiming she’s spent the last few months reflecting on her defeat.
On the Onward website, the group claims its mission is to advance “the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election.”
“By encouraging people to organize, get involved, and run for office, Onward Together will advance progressive values and work to build a brighter future for generations to come,” the site states.
“The challenges we face as a country are real. But there’s no telling what we can achieve if we approach the fights ahead with the passion and determination we feel today, and bring that energy into 2017, 2018, 2020, and beyond.”
By registering as a 501(c)(4), Clinton’s new organization can accept unlimited amounts of money from donors whose names are not required to be disclosed, notes NTKnetwork.com.
501(c)(4)s differ from Super PACs in that the latter must disclose donors.
“If you are a donor looking to influence election but do not want to reveal your identity, the 501(c)(4) is an attractive option through which to send your cash,” writes the Washington Post.
Also, contributions to Onward “are not tax deductible as charitable contributions or as business deductions” as a result of the 501(c)(4) status.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary campaigned against “dark money” being permitted to influence politics. NTKNetwork notes: “In October 2015, during a town hall meeting in Iowa, Clinton called 501(c)(4) groups ‘unaccountable dark money,’ and even used the left’s favorite boogey-men, the Koch brothers, as an example of a group that operates this kind of organization.” Now she apparently thinks the more “dark money,” the better.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note: Here’s another perfect example of what’s wrong with the Democrat approach to politics, and why Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump. People were sick to death of hearing Mrs. Clinton speak out of both sides of her mouth. She has always had a real problem with truth-telling and consistency. Before the election she didn’t like “dark money” at all, but after losing the election, she thinks there is absolutely no reason not to pursue it. Bill Clinton started a foundation to provide assistance to worthy causes, but almost immediately discovered the worthiest cause was himself. (And now that he can’t peddle his connection to a sitting secretary of state any longer, not to mention to a new president, he’s trying to peddle himself as an author of third-rate novels to keep the cash flowing. The Clintons have no idea what it means to live a life of honor and integrity. To extend an offer of help to the Trump White House is the farthest thing from their minds; all they can think of is how to impede and destroy anything Mr. Trump wants to do. Of course, Hillary calls it “building a brighter future for generations to come,” but that’s just another example of her inability to distinguish truth from lies.)
