Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang insisted Sunday that his contest to provide 10 Americans $1,000 monthly for one year — which would come from campaign donations — is “perfectly legal” as campaign finance experts have expressed after skepticism of legality.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Yes, we have an army of lawyers who signed off on it,” Yang, the 44-year-old businessman who has seen his upstart presidential campaign gain momentum in recent months, told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And we’re sure that this is perfectly legal.”
Yang added that “if I gave a million dollars to a media company or consultants or hired like a small army of canvassers, no one would blink an eye.”
“But if we give the money directly to the American people, somehow, that’s problematic,” he continued. “So it just speaks to how messed up our system is, where giving money directly to Americans actually raises eyebrows.”
