A protest group accosting Republican lawmakers over their support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh claim they are a money-stricken grassroots organization despite taking money from activist billionaires and may potentially be shirking the law with their promotion of civil disobedience.
The Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a non-profit group established in 2012, has risen to national prominence during the Kavanaugh hearings, organizing civil disobedience actions and confronting several Republican lawmakers to pressure them into opposing the nominee.
The article goes on to state the following:
The CPD has been responsible for accosting several GOP lawmakers, with Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake’s confrontation in an elevator the one that captured the most attention.
Fox News also reported:
But despite claiming to have no “big money donors,” the CPD and its political arm CPD Action, which helped organize protests at the Kavanaugh hearings, raked in over $13 million and nearly $3 million respectively in contributions or grants in 2016, according to public records.
The groups attracted hefty donations from left-wing foundations over the years. The Ford Foundation donated nearly $2.5 million between 2015 and 2016. Throughout 2017, the foundation gave nearly $9 million. This year so far, the CPD received $375,000 from the foundation.
Liberal billionaire George Soros’ organization has also donated to the CPD over the years. Soros gave $1.5 million to the Center for Popular Democracy in 2016 and 2017 through his philanthropic organization Open Society Foundations, the records show. He also donated in the past two years another $1.2 million to the nonprofit’s sister organization Center for Popular Democracy Action.
