A group aligned with Democrat Senate Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) brought in a record $92 million in “dark money” from anonymous donors while Schumer slammed Republicans for using — you guessed it — dark money, according to Breitbart News.
Majority Forward, a nonprofit affiliated with Schumer’s Senate Majority PAC, hauled in $92 million between July 2019 and June 2020, according to the organization’s tax forms.
During the 2020 election cycle, Majority Forward contributed $51 million to Schumer’s PAC, making it the largest donor. Meanwhile, he criticized the GOP for doing the same thing. Schumer also pushed the Senate to pass the For the People Act, which contains provisions requiring political nonprofits to disclose donors who contribute more than $10,000.
“Majority Forward is kind of a dark money empire that the Democrat Party really doesn’t want to talk about, especially Chuck Schumer,” Parker Thayer, a Capital Research Center investigator told Fox News. “The Democratic Party makes a big deal in public about getting rid of dark money, getting dark money out of politics, but the reality is even the New York Times is now reporting on this.”
Thayer referred to a recent New York Times report that found 15 of the most active Democrat dark money organizations outspent the top 15 Republican groups by a margin of over $600 million. Those Democrat dark money groups spent $1.5 billion during the 2020 cycle, compared to $900 million for Republican organizations.
“Democrats use much more dark money than Republicans do, and they’re more than willing to take that funding as long as it benefits them, but they’ll still simultaneously call out conservatives and Republicans for using dark money as well,” Thayer pointed out.
Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat.
