Democracy Alliance in Turmoil as Member Dissatisfaction Mounts


Recommended Posts

The Democracy Alliance is aiming to massively increase its shadowy fundraising operation in the face of dissatisfaction by numerous individuals and organizations associated with the group, according to internal documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.


The documents detail nearly $70 million in financing in 2013 by individuals and organizations associated with the DA, more than double the previously reported totals.


Last year, that money financed a network of 132 left-wing groups, a progressive infrastructure far larger than 21 “aligned network” organizations previously reported as DA beneficiaries.


However, Democracy Alliance president Gara LaMarche is not satisfied with the scale of the organization’s fundraising apparatus.


In his prepared remarks at DA’s April conference in Chicago, a copy of which was obtained by the Free Beacon, LaMarche called on attendees to provide, through the DA, “the hundreds of millions of dollars that will be necessary to make a serious effort” to elect Democratic candidates and enact more liberal policies.Scissors-32x32.png

Democracy Alliance Bankrolls Dem Super PAC


Members of a secretive club of wealthy left-wing donors are bankrolling a major Democratic Super PAC backing a likely Hillary Clinton presidential run even as some of the group’s members complain it is too closely tied to the Democratic Party.


More than a third of total contributions this year to American Bridge 21st Century have come from individuals associated with the Democracy Alliance.


The most prominent and deep-pocketed is left-wing billionaire George Soros, who has donated half a million dollars to the group this year. Sixteen Democracy Alliance donors, including Soros, have given American Bridge just shy of $2 million since January.


That is roughly 36 percent of the $5,332,844.33 the group says it has received in contributions this year, according to information filed with the Federal Election Commission.


American Bridge is an opposition research outfit founded by Democratic operative and prominent Hillary Clinton supporter David Brock. Brock has used American Bridge and Media Matters for America, an activist group he chairs, to attack those perceived as Clinton critics ahead of her widely expected 2016 presidential run.Scissors-32x32.png
