Trump Megadonor & Houston Mayoral Candidate Is a Top Sponsor for Democratic Fundraiser with Hillary

Trump Megadonor and Houston Mayoral Candidate Is a Top Sponsor for Democratic Fundraiser with Hillary Clinton

How Tony Buzbee, a wealthy insurgent trying to oust Sylvester Turner, went from bankrolling Trump to being a “White Pantsuit Sponsor” for Hillary Clinton-headlined event.


There’s a long list of sponsors for the Harris County Democratic Party’s annual Johnson Rayburn Richards Luncheon, a marquee fundraiser that this year boasts Hillary Clinton as the speaker. The event this Friday features the typical benefactors of party functions, including elected officials, party donors, operatives and activists.

But one of those names is not like the others: Tony Buzbee, the uber-wealthy trial lawyer and controversial persona who is taking on Sylvester Turner, the Democratic mayor of Houston.

Like most political fundraisers, the luncheon offers donors various titles depending on their level of generosity. At the top is “The Glass Ceiling Sponsor,” followed by “The Persistent Women.” Buzbee is in the third tier of sponsors, listed as a “White Pantsuit Sponsor” along with Houston’s three Democratic U.S. Representatives.

Oddly enough, Buzbee was also a megadonor for Donald Trump, cutting a check to the Trump Victory fund for $250,000 and giving the Republican National Committee more than $160,000. He even hosted a rollicking fundraiser for Trump in the summer of 2016 at his $14 million River Oaks mansion.

1. Sounds like Trump

Only loyalty towards winning. Throwing money wherever he thinks it will benefit himself.

2. I'd never vote for this mook, but he did do this ...

from the article:

"In fact, he gave $110,000 to the Harris County Democratic Party during the 2018 cycle, along with a lot of donations to Democratic judicial candidates, who ended up sweeping out every sitting Republican judge in the county."
