Demanding “transparency,” a nonprofit liberal dark money group called “Fix the Court” has been going after Justice Clarence Thomas.
The group is a spin-off of a 2021 project, a massive liberal dark money network powered by a for-profit company called Arabella Advisors. The purpose of the group is to attack conservative Supreme Court justices and force them to disclose their finances.
The Washington Examiner was investigating the group, and the organization provided them with materials about the group. However, when they did, they made a big mistake.
“Fix the Court” accidentally gave the Washington Examiner unredacted copies of their 2021 and 2022 donors list.
Gabe Roth, executive director of Fix the Court and a former vice president at the Democratic consulting firm SKDK begged the conservative outlet not to publish the donor list.
“As you can see if you’ve reviewed the forms, I’m not a good fundraiser,” Roth said. “I’m not a good CPA. I’m a klutz. Schedule B is not something that is sent out, right? It’s not made public. Like, if you’re donating to a 501(c)(3), the IRS gets to see who donates to you, but the general public doesn’t.”
“I mean, basically, I’ve tried to donate money; I have failed,” Roth added. “I tried to raise money; I have failed. I have only two foundations that give me money, and if their names become public, they’re never going to talk to me again, and Fix the Court is over. My screwup this morning probably cost me my job.”
The executive director added, “I really just don’t know what to do here” and that he “just f***ed up in a minute” after the group had been operating for almost a decade.
The Washington Examiner found that the liberal dark money group attack Thomas has improperly filed their taxes and disclosed some of the groups main donors:
The Washington Examiner can reveal that the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, which has supported climate groups and said in 2015 it had a “moral obligation” to divest from supporting pro-fossil fuel groups, gave $50,000 to Fix the Court, according to tax forms.
The Lebowitz-Aberly Family Foundation, an organization that has bankrolled pro-abortion causes and is affiliated with hedge fund manager Larry Lebowitz and Naomi Aberly, who once chaired the board of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, gave $35,000 to Fix the Court, according to tax forms. Tax forms also show that a group based in Pennsylvania called the Weinberg McCann Foundation gave $100,000 to Fix the Court.
Documents also showed “The group’s Schedule B for 2021 shows that it received the roughly $111,000 New Venture Fund grant and also $175,000 from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, a major liberal group launched in 1966 by Hewlett-Packard co-founder William R. Hewlett that has donated large sums to Planned Parenthood.”
The cats out of the bag now and it seems that “Fix the Court” is about to disappear.
