Just as Democratic donors thought they’d finally put away wallets for Hillary Clinton, she’s coming back to NYC for a fund-raiser for her nonprofit — while also creating a party stink by throwing the bash at the exact same time as an event for DNC chairman Tom Perez.
Clinton will be in town on April 30 for her “Onward Together” organization, to support young political leaders.
With great fanfare, Clinton announced in an email to her 2016 supporters that she is launching the Onward Together Leadership Council and that they could become charter members — in return for coughing up at least $10,000.
The email states, “Charter members . . . are an esteemed network of supporters who pledge to contribute $10,000 and up. Members will receive updates, briefings and invitations . . .”
Meanwhile, Perez will be at Manhattan law firm Kramer Levin to discuss congressional midterm election strategy.
His event is not a fund-raiser, we’re told, as the law firm does not allow them, but there would likely be a follow-up cash ask.
An insider told us, “It will be interesting to see who goes to Hillary and who goes to Tom.”
