Kenneth Lerer, the chairman of Buzzfeed.com, is a major financial supporter of Democrat politicians. He has threatened to cut off funding to those who fail to support Obama’s program of expanded background checks for gun purchasers. David Bohnett, a tech entrepreneur and Democrat money source is also threatening to cut off the funds for the same reason. Grace Tsau-Wu, a Chicago money bundler has reached the same conclusion.
The Democrat politicians have to decide between their ability to get votes from their own rank and file voters, vs the ability to sell themselves using money from the leftist oligarchy which runs their party.
