NEWS: Think tank @Demos_Org gave @WorkingFamilies Party $45,000 in 2017-2018. @ewarren's daughter Amelia is chairwoman of Demos. Despite this, she is currently not listed on Demos website (but it still shows up on Google).

A source of mine familiar with Working Families Party's inner dynamics told me at the time of the @ewarren endorsement that they were "broke" and expect more money to come into it as a result of Warren endorsement. In light of this news, it goes without saying....
1) @WorkingFamilies should've disclosed this at time of its endorsement for Warren

2) WFP should immediately release their MEMBERSHIP tallies for how their membership voted bw @ewarren and @BernieSanders (which they did in 2016)
The last time the Wayback Machine shows a snapshot of Warren’s daughter Amelia listed on the Demos Board of Trustees page was May of this year.
I'd say $45K to @WorkingFamilies from Demos isn't exactly game-changing...six figure checks are. But source familiar with WFP tells me the Demos $$ to WFP was a "signal" that there's more where that came from if WFP were to endorse Warren.
It should also be noted---WFP itself was pushing the @BernieSanders supporters are sending harassing tweets and are "racist" after the @ewarren endorsement....without providing much evidence of such. This of course doesn't mean there wasn't isolated examples of volatile tweets
But WFP was itself pushing this with media outlets---an odd thing to do publicly if you genuinely respect and appreciate @BernieSanders (as they said they do) and consider him to be your second choice. This was right out of @HillaryClinton and David Brock's playbook
Lastly, and maybe the MOST troubling...Warren's campaign treasurer is STILL on the board of @Demos_Org---who donated $45K to @WorkingFamilies. This also was not disclosed by WFP. THIS STINKS TO THE HIGH HEAVENS. publicintegrity.org/federal-politi…
If the son of @BernieSanders was the head of a lemonade stand and that lemonade stand donated to @WorkingFamiliesParty and then WFP endorsed Bernie....

1) MSNBC would switch from #RussiaGate to #BernieGate
2) Washington Post would write 125 negative Bernie stories in 16 hours
Closing the circle—@Demos_Org—the think tank that @ewarren’s daughter is chairwoman (as of May) signed the letter from @WorkingFamilies decrying “harassment” from @BernieSanders supporters medium.com/@aliciagarza_7…
.@Demos_Org made $229,523 in grants for 2017-2018. The $45,000 in grants to @WorkingFamilies makes up 20% of their overall grants. That’s a fairly significant amount for a donation-based organization.
