Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) presidential campaign suggested Sunday that the campaign’s low first-quarter fundraising totals could be partly attributed to backlash over Gillibrand’s decision in 2017 to call for the resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.).

In a memo obtained by The New York Times, the campaign reportedly said there’s “no question” that donors are retaliating in response to Gillibrand calling on Franken, who had been accused of sexual harassment, to step aside.

The article goes on to state the following:

“There’s no question that the first quarter was adversely impacted by certain establishment donors — and many online — who continue to punish Kirsten for standing up for her values and for women,” the memo reads.

Gillibrand was the first senator in 2017 to call for Franken to step down amid the allegations of sexual misconduct.

Here are some examples of Twitter users disgruntled remarks about Gillibrand in relation to Franken.

    It appears that you can not blame the Russians for every campaign issue, so you have to blame something else on her poor fundraising. It probably would be much easier if she would just acknowledge that she’s a very poor candidate. You can’t run on hate, you need policies that the american care about.

    Is it so hard to believe that she just doesn’t cut it. Always someone elses fault. Pure democratic playbook. All of these demo candidates are only running to get the donations that are then skimmed… they ALL know that they have no chance against President Trump.
