Swiss billionaire whose personal goal is to “(re)interpret the American Constitution in the light of progressive politics” has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to a left-wing group that is dumping millions into state ballot initiatives, a new report from Americans for Public Trust (APT) revealed.

Hansjörg Wyss, through his Berger Action Fund, has donated $243 million to the Sixteen Thirty Fund, which “uses its war chest … to support massive get-out-the-vote drives, issue advocacy campaigns bolstering President Biden’s agenda, liberal pet projects from abortion to immigration, and attack ads against Republican lawmakers,” according to APT.

 

The group also pours resources into state ballot initiatives — to the tune of $97,593,151 over the past decade, according to the report. The cash infusions are “often concentrated in battleground presidential states such as Arizona, Michigan, and Ohio or states with competitive U.S. Senate races like Colorado, Missouri, and Nevada.” The lion’s share of that funding has gone to Michigan, Ohio, Colorado, Nebraska, Missouri, and Nevada, but the Sixteen Thirty Fund also targets ballot initiatives in solid red states like Arkansas, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

The Sixteen Thirty Fund has dumped nearly $34 million into Michigan — a state former President Donald Trump won in 2016 — since 2017 to, in part, “rewrite the state’s election laws,” according to the report. In Nevada, the group “was the number one donor to a ballot issue that implemented automatic voter registration” in 2018.:snip:
