Did a Beverly Hills billionaire try to buy superdelegate votes for Clinton?

Haim Saban, the billionaire television producer of Power Rangers and other properties, supposedly offered to donate $1 million dollars to the Young Democrats of America in the same phone call where he also pushed for two uncommitted superdelegates with the group to endorse Hillary Clinton, according to the Huffington Post.

Saban has denied the claim, while HuffPo claims to have verified the story among no less than four different high ranking members of the YDA. YDA President David Hardt, whom the offer was supposedly made to, has yet to comment on the issue.

Last week, Crystal Strait, a Young Democrats of America member, made national news by announcing her support for Barack Obama as a California superdelegate, effectively tying Obama and Clinton in superdelegate counts.
