Haim Saban Goes Too Far

I’ve mentioned Hiam Saban before in this blog. He and his friends threatened Nancy Pelosi a month ago, but today the Huffington Post is reporting Hiam offered $1 million to the Young Democrats of America if they would commit their super-delegates to Hillary.

Haim Saban, the billionaire entertainment magnate and longtime Clinton supporter, denied the allegation. But four independent sources said that just before the North Carolina and Indiana primaries, Saban called YDA President David Hardt and offered what was perceived as a lucrative proposal: $1 million would be made available for the group if Hardt and the organization’s other uncommitted superdelegate backed Clinton.

I know why Saban and the rest of the Big Media crowd are afraid of Obama, but this sinking too low for even the Clinton’s. If you can’t call this bribery, what is it?

    Being willing to support a group that proves it wants your support – thinks like you do. It’s your invention, this “democracy” others are just playing by the rules.

    I have no idea what Morgan’s comment is supposed to mean.

    I’m not sure I understand what Mr. Saban was up to either, though. This offer of $1 mil was for two unpledged superdelegates? Seems pretty steep to me. Obviously, there’s the factor of creating buzz about a core BO group’s SDs backing Clinton, but did anyone think this money would change hands and not get noticed? This is almost too unbelievable to believe.
