Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is out with a new ad that suggests rival Hillary Clinton is the recipient of “a corrupt campaign finance system.”

The ad doesn’t mention by name. But it follows Sanders’ recent criticism of her past speeches and support for a lower minimum wage than he has proposed.

“Wall Street banks shower Washington politicians with campaign contributions and speaking fees,” the ad’s narrator says. “And what do they get for it? A rigged economy, tax breaks and bailouts. All held in place by a corrupt campaign finance system.”

“And while Washington politicians are paid over $200,000 a hour for speeches, they oppose raising the living wage to 15 dollars an hour. $200,000 an hour for them, but not even 15 bucks an hour for all Americans. Enough is enough.”
