Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has actually announced she will no longer take business SPECIAL-INTEREST GROUP cash. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us just what you believe in the remark area below. Support Wolf-PAC right here:

Find out more below:

" New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a possible challenger in the 2020 Democratic presidential key, said Tuesday she would no longer approve donations from the political activity boards of for-profit firms.

Her restriction includes payments from PACs linked to trade associations as well as law office, her spokesman Glen Caplin told Roll Call in an e-mail, saying the goal was to "get business cash from politics."

PAC cash from labor unions is still welcome, Caplin stated.

Special-interest groups have totaled up to about 15 percent of Gillibrand's donations over her profession in the House and Senate, according to data from the nonpartisan Facility for Responsive National Politics. A bulk of that political cash, 65 percent, has actually originated from service PACs.

Labor PACs stood for concerning 14 percent of Gillibrand's Political Action Committee dollars, while ideological or single-issue PACs amounted to greater than 20 percent, the center's information showed. She did not claim that she would certainly return past contributions from company Special-interest groups.

" I intend to lower the impact of money in national politics," Gillibrand, who is for re-election in November, claimed in a press release.

Lawyers and workers of protections and also investment company are amongst Gillibrand's top donors, the Center for Responsive National politics has tabulated using Federal Election Commission documents."

    This is surprising and impressive. Hope she sticks to this.

    She’s not my number one pick, but I think she’s a dark horse, and I’d be happy to support her if she keeps this up.

    • Posted by NULLPTR, at Reply

      Lauren Brown I agree, no one’s spotless. But I do hope she becomes more progressive moving forward.

    • Posted by cobraglatiator, at Reply

      just remain cautious. : P could be a trick…

    • Posted by Jope Dope Dope, at Reply

      Of course it’s a trick. Her PAC contributions are only 7% of her total contributions. She gets her money from large individual donations by means of fund raisers

    Well, its a start. But I’d also judge her on her voting record; not accepting corporate money doesn’t automatically make her a progressive. But I do give credit where credit is due.

    • Posted by john neumann, at Reply

      She has already taken 6 million . She really doesn’t need any more.. Dog and pony show..

    • Posted by Ryan Chan, at Reply

      I’m on the fence on her. But she actually has the most progressive voting results for 2017-2018, next to Bernie. She has better voting record than Elizabeth Warren.

      Ryan Chan really? That’s impressive

      I remember Emma Vigeland talking about. One specific bill, she was one of the few senators (along with Sanders) that voted against the increased military budget bill ($700 billion) (92-8 vote). A lot of the democrats (Booker, Harris, Warren) voted for it.

    Awesome?

    Damn. Even Hillary Lite is letting go of the corporate teat. Who’d have thought?

    • Posted by john neumann, at Reply

      Sucker ? She took 6 million from those people already this election cycle.. It’s a bit late to “give it up”

  6. Posted by Jason C, at Reply

    She’s going after Bernie just saying.

      Great. He’s too old for the job.

    • Posted by Eduardo Leão, at Reply

      Bernie lost. Time for new blood.

      1Lifeonearth I wish we all could give a day of our lives to give to the BERN

    This really is the most important thing. I still don’t like her politics but damn, this helps . . . . 👏👏👏

  11. Posted by David Owens, at Reply

    She’s definately the smartest Corporate Dem out there. She knows what needs to happen in order to win in 2020.

  12. Posted by Mercy, at Reply

    Cenk is right, Take the win. Don’t ruin it by being to pessimistic.

  13. Posted by Darin Singleton, at Reply

    Skepticism is definitely warranted. But, regardless – This. Is. Huge.

  14. Posted by Bottom Line, at Reply

    This is a great trend. Let’s keep it going.

    • Posted by john neumann, at Reply

      You know she already got 6 million from them this cycle right?

    • Posted by Winston C, at Reply

      john neumann 6 million from who and when. Was it before or after announcement of not taking anymore PAC money?

  16. Posted by AussieGirl, at Reply

    Get her on board to promote Wolfpack

  17. Posted by Alan Heath, at Reply

    As this lady does not want her cheque, donors could send it to me instead.

  18. Posted by Larry Poorman, at Reply

    We will see. If she no longer accepts corporate money then the campaign money will have to come from somewhere – small doners? If she wishes to appeal to small doners then she is going to need a message – something that has been lacking in her platform up until now. Judge her first after we know where she stands.

  19. Posted by Drm R, at Reply

    If she means it, cool. If it turns out she lied, tar and feather, like the real old days.

  20. Posted by Marc Touss, at Reply

    i voted for her.. didnt know how establishment she was at the time.. she’s gonna win me back if she’s 4 realz..

    • Posted by Allen Albright, at Reply

      She is NOT for real, she simply knows that he progressive way can win. Sanders is the man.
