Hillary Clinton said Wednesday night of Goldman Sachs, "They're not giving me very much money now, I can tell you that much."
That's not really true. Of course Hillary stopped accepting speaking fees once she went on the campaign trail, but her campaign is pocketing some Goldman cash. Hillary has received more than $90,000 from Goldman employees for her current presidential run — nearly twice as much as Ted Cruz has raised from the Wall Street giant, and his wife works there.
- Michael Paese, a lobbyist for Goldman Sachs gave Hillary's campaign the maximum $2,700 and an additional $5,000 to the Ready For Hillary PAC last year
- Global Head of Corporate Communications Jake Siewert gave $2,000 to Hillary.
- Goldman VP Rick Lerner maxxed out for the primary and has given her $500 for the general
- Goldman Sachs Partner David Schwimmer (not Ross Geller) is a Hillary donor
- Goldman VP David Solow maxxed out to Hillary.
And Clinton bragged about having raised so much from women. Here are some of her female donors:
- Laura Blankfein, wife of Goldman CEO, gave Hillary the maximum $2,700 on Sept. 30 last year.
- Obama bundler and VP for private wealth management Jennifer Scully-Lerner
- Wenchi Yu, Goldman's Head of Corporate Engagement
- Goldman managing director Julienne Silverman
- Goldman managing director Laura Sanchez
- Goldman VP and assistant general counsel Margaret Vaden
