Hillary Clinton Is Taking Money from Rich People in San Francisco Today

Continuing in the long tradition of presidential candidates who treat San Francisco as more of an ATM than a place where voters live, Hillary Clinton is holding two private fundraisers in the city today, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. She'll host a lunchtime “Conversations With Hillary” event at the home of Tom Steyer (net worth $1.62 billion) and an afternoon event at the home of millionaire Esprit co-founder Susie Tompkins Buell. According to the Chronicle, tickets for both events are $2700.

Environmental activists plan to protest outside the afternoon fundraiser to call on Clinton to reject the Keystone XL pipeline. They'll be at the corner of Steiner and Jackson Streets starting at 4:30pm. Tickets are free.
