“If you send me a screenshot of you donating to Elizabeth Warren I will give you my alt and if you already have my alt I’ll give you a month of OnlyFans,” Benjamin told his 8K followers on Twitter last week.

And the money came rolling in… Sorta.
People began sharing screenshots of their donations, ranging from $3 to $5 to $500, to Warren’s campaign.

Benjamin tells Gay Star News the whole thing started as a joke and he was surprised when people actually took his offer seriously.
“I originally posted it as kind of a joke,” he said. “It has actually been crazy. I had a lot of people messaged me to say, ‘I wanted to donate to Elizabeth Warren and this inspired me.'”
The 25-year-old says he mainly supports Warren’s candidacy because she’s a woman.
“I would just love to see a woman in the White House. In the 2016 election, the majority of the country voted for Hilary Clinton. America wants a woman president. And Warren is just so capable of being president.”
He adds that one of his goals of doing adult films is to combat the stigma that surrounds sex work, and Warren has said she is open to decriminalizing it.
Warren’s campaign hasn’t issued any comment on Benjamin’s grassroots fundraising efforts.
