Levi Strauss heir spending millions to win Democratic House primary

Opponents of Donald Trump have recently stepped up their attacks on the former president, with Attorney General Merrick Garland personally approving a raid on the former president’s Florida home last week.

What’s more, a man who worked to impeach Trump in 2019 is spending millions of his own dollars to win a congressional seat. 

Blue jeans heir once served as chief Democratic House Intelligence Committee lawyer

The New York Post reported on Saturday that Levi Strauss & Co. heir Dan Goldman has dished out $2 million in his quest to win the Democratic nomination in New York’s 10th congressional district.

According to the paper, that figure comes on top of the $1.5 million that has been raised from individual contributions provided by 2,500 donors.

The Post recalled how Goldman previously served as chief Democratic House Intelligence Committee lawyer during former President Trump’s first impeachment trial.

Although the House of Representatives did vote to impeach Trump on charges of abuse of power stemming from a phone call he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Senate refused to convict him.

Levi Strauss & Co. has long deep ties to left-wing causes

Many will find Goldman’s activity unsurprising given how Levi Strauss & Co. has a history of supporting left-wing causes.

This includes issuing a statement condemning the Supreme Court’s ruling that there is no constitutional right to abortion.

Breitbart also noted in 2018 that the company had announced it would be spending millions of dollars in partnership with former the Michael Bloomberg-funded anti-gun group Everytown for Gun Safety.

In an op-ed piece for Fortune magazine, Levi Strauss & Co. CEO Chip boasted of how he “wrote an open letter requesting that gun owners not bring firearms into our stores, offices, or facilities, even in states where it’s permitted by law.”

Further, the blue jeans manufacturer “established the Safer Tomorrow Fund, which will direct more than $1 million in philanthropic grants from Levi Strauss & Co. over the next four years to fuel the work of nonprofits and youth activists who are working to end gun violence in America.
