Joe Biden is raising money for a likely legal fight from President Donald Trump over election results in several states.
The website entitled Biden Fight Fund allocates the donations: $142,000/$60,000 to the Democratic National Committee, $2,800/$5,000 to the Biden for President Recount Account, and any additional contributions go to the DNC.
There are actually two Biden Fight Funds – one run by ActBlue, the Democrats’ monster fundraising machine, and the other by NPG Van, a big data service company that interfaces with the Democratic National Committee.
Potential donors are greeted with the following message:
“Your donation right now is absolutely critical to electing Joe, Kamala, and Democrats across the country, and we’re counting on a surge of donations to fund all that we need to accomplish.”
But the fine print says funds go to various accounts besides the legal fund.
In the past 48 hours, Biden’s official Twitter account has tweeted out a link to the ActBlue Biden Fight Fund four times.
At the same time, President Trump’s team has been pushing legal fight donations through the Republican portal: WinRed.com, as legal challenges over vote counting have been mounted by the Trump campaign in five states.
His fund allocates donations, matched 1,000-to-1, to retire campaign debt and for the legal battle now underway, all spelled out in the fine print.
