Sanders supporter Dr. Paul Song resigns from Courage Campaign after ‘corporate whore’ comment [View all]

“Medicare-for-all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate Democratic whores who are beholden to big pharma and the private insurance industry instead of us,” he said at the rally on April 14.

After facing a backlash, Song insisted he wasn’t referring to Sanders’ Democratic rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“I want to apologize to Secretary Clinton for my insensitive use of the word ‘whores’ and to adamantly profess that this was never intended nor directed at her, as some have incorrectly interpreted,” Song wrote.
