Revealed Major Funder of CPPR, Other Dark Money Groups (OpenSecrets)

by - September 12, 2013

Much of the funding for some of the largest conservative dark money groups in 2012 came from a previously little-known group that was started by and is to some degree bankrolled by the billionaire Koch brothers, according to a story on Politico's website today. Freedom Partners, a 501(c)(6) business partnership, made grants totaling $236 million since it was founded in November, 2011. Almost half of that -- $115 million -- went to the Center to Protect Patient Rights, a group that has no activities of its own other than giving grants to other politically active tax-exempt organizations. That's more than CPPR's budget in all years combined since it was established in 2009. It's run by Sean Noble, a political consultant and Koch operative.
