BuzzFeed misses the key point of so much US funding for Netanyahu campaign–the amount is so small!
This great piece today at BuzzFeed said: “As Netanyahu kicked off his campaign, records from Israel’s State Comptroller Office showed he had raised just over 1 million shekels (roughly $250,000), with more than 90% of it coming from donors in the United States.”
After having been the policy director for a (losing) US congressional campaign in upstate New York, ONE mere campaign, I was struck here by what Canadians say to us: How can you americans possibly spend and allow so much money in elections!
Team Net is raising it seems UNDER ONE MILLION dollars for a race for the top slot.
We alone spent more than $2 million for ONE single seat out of 435…. you do the math and draw the implications.
