Dean Admits Democratic ‘Double Standard’ on Super PACs

Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while defending Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean revealed that now labor unions have super PACs, Democrats are reluctant to attack super PACs.

Dean said, “She had given speeches to colleges, for example, it turned out that money was either put up by donors and had nothing to do with the colleges, and a lot of it was given back to the Clinton Foundation, which is a major charity, done great things for people all over the world. Why does Hillary Clinton have to put up with the double standard? I don’t hear anyone asking Bernie Sanders for his transcripts for some speech he made with the labor union. And frankly for Bernie to say he doesn’t have a super PAC, labor unions are super PACs. Now they are super PACs Democrats like, so we don’t go after labor unions. But this is a double standard.”
