Anti-Trump Republican Group Exposed as Fully Funded by Major Democrat Donor

Share

A “Republican” group that opposes President Donald Trump known as Republican Women for Progress is being completely funded by one male Democrat billionaire.

The organization, in its mission statement, claims to support Republican women.

“We believe that Republican women deserve to speak up, not stand aside. That we need to connect better, smarter. That being engaged in American politics is mission critical,” the group’s website claims.

However, the website also claims the group was formed from an earlier group, Republican Women for Hillary, which in turn was created to support Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Someone should inform these women that Clinton is not a Republican woman.

Members of Republican Women for Progress explained to Glamour how they felt when Clinton lost.

“On election night we felt a range of emotions: It went from disbelief to sadness to anger to a sense of urgency. It was rough,” the women said.

That’s strange. Republicans were celebrating that night (I mean, aside from Bill Kristol).

Considering the “Republican” group’s strikingly un-Republican history, it’s not a surprise to find out who is paying their bills.

Should this group disband after being exposed as Democrat shills?

The PAC’s October quarterly filing revealed that Republican Women for Progress is funded by Reid Hoffman, billionaire co-founder of LinkedIn and frequent donor to Democrats. Hoffman gave the group a generous $400,000.

Previous filings show Hoffman’s support for hard-line Democrats like Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Sherrod Brown and Sen. Bob Casey, to name just a few.

Did Hoffman simply turn a new leaf and decide to support Republicans?

Of course not. The Republican Women for Progress is just another generic anti-Trump organization.

The women’s group responded Friday after the Washington Free Beacon published a story about the donor.

“In terms of the Reid Hoffman donation, even a male tech billionaire and major Democratic donor recognizes the important role women should play in the Republican party. We are pleased to have the support of donors across the ideological spectrum to ensure the voice of republican (sic) women is heard across the country,” the women said.

Or perhaps Hoffman realizes that the group is anti-Trump and his contribution could help destabilize the GOP. It’s either the case that they’re aware of his agenda or they are unwittingly being used as tools by a Democrat billionaire.

This “Republican” group is little more than another underhanded Democratic Party front.
