Hillary Clinton is attempting to cash in on the plight of Louisiana flood victims.
The Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook penned a fundraising email to supporters on Friday, invoking the crisis and seeking donations — but not for the victims.
Instead, for Hillary’s campaign.

“I just got off the phone with Governor John Bel Edwards of Louisiana,” Mook writes.
“The flooding there is more extensive than anyone expected — more than 40,000 homes have been damaged and more than 100,000 people have been affected.
“My heart breaks for Louisiana, and right now, the relief effort can’t afford any distractions. The very best way this team can help is to make sure Louisianans have the resources they need,” Mook says.
Mook then asks for a $10 donation — but not for flood victims.
“Hillary needs you now more than ever — chip in $10 and be one of the more than 2 million grassroots donors standing with her,” he writes.
