1.6 BILLION

A TSUNAMI of DARK MONEY is flooding our justice system — and it's only getting worse

A new conservative nonprofit group scored a $1.6 billion windfall last year via a little-known donor…The source of the money was #BarreSeid

#MOG
share.smartnews.com/bnJUm
The beneficiary of that unprecedented sum is a newly-created political group controlled by #LeonardLeo, a right-wing activist with deep connections to Republican donors and politicians, as well as conservative forces within the Roman Catholic Church… he STACKED the SUPREME COURT
To say that Seid's donation will allow Leo to double down on that effort may be an understatement. (Can one "quadruple down"?) The Times noted, moreover, that the source of these funds is "difficult to trace through public records."
