DNC Chairman Tom Perez plans to hold party fundraising events with the American expatriate in Mexico City.
According to Bloomberg, the three fundraisers scheduled for the 28th will range from a student-centric event with a $25 minimum entry fee, to a dinner where tickets could go for as much as $15k.
Since when is it legal to raise funds for a US election in a foreign country?
Desperate Democrats Are Looking High And Low For Support — AND NOW Even ACROSS THE BORDER LOL.
You Can’t make this stuff up…
Hopefully they leave the broken Spanish at home. I’m sure these folks attending the Mexico City Events speak English. https://t.co/nKjnzAjGz6take our poll - story continues below

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez will hold three fundraisers for American ex-patriots in Mexico, as Democrats struggle to keep pace with Republicans in fundraising.
Perez will host three events in Mexico City on Sept. 28, Bloomberg reported. One event is a happy hour that will cost $25 to attend. Perez will also host a dinner where tickets are going for between $1,000 and $15,000.
DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa’s confirmed to Bloomberg that the events would be taking place.
The DNC will require attendees to provide information showing that they are American citizens or permanent residents, in order to comply with federal campaign finance laws. More
Because there are an abundance of future voters making there way north.

“The DNC will require attendees to provide information showing that they are American citizens or permanent residents, in order to comply with federal campaign finance laws.” So we need to see an ID for you to go to a fundraiser, but not to actually vote. Got it.
So they require ID to contribute to their campaigns in a foreign country but they don’t require ID to vote in their own country.

Hey, Beto-the-Crazy has been campaigning in Mexico.
Why not? The Dems prioritize illegal Mexicans over Americans. At least consistent. And disgraceful.

So, $15,000 a ticket at some events?
Don’t let anyone tell you Mexico is not buying our politicians.
