A few days ago, we published the 2018 March For Our Lives IRS 990 forms with a brief breakdown. Today, we came across Everytown’s 990’s for the same year. You’re not gonna believe this (actually, you will).....
First, a CNBC article had them (these are not on Guidestar’s database yet). From that article:
A gun safety group co-founded by presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg raised its most money ever in 2018, the year Democrats took back the House of Representatives — with much of it coming from the billionaire former New York mayor himself.
The organization, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, brought in $69.5 million in total revenue last year, according to a new 990 tax return first reviewed by CNBC. That's nearly double its revenue from 2017. The National Rifle Association, the biggest pro-gun lobby in the country, raised $352 million last year, meanwhile, representing only 12% revenue growth, its most recent disclosure form shows.
The 501(c)(4), which focuses on political initiatives, received $66 million of that total in grants and contributions. A source said $38 million of that — listed as an anonymous donation in the document — came from Bloomberg himself. Combined with their other nonprofit, Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, the organization as a whole raised over $106 million.
The source said Bloomberg, who earlier this week launched his bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, has accounted for about a third of the group's total funding in recent years. Bloomberg has a net worth of just over $55 billion.
So, what does this have to do with March For Our Lives? See what the Action Fund bankrolled in 2018 and pay attention to the far right hand columns....
This is the man who is the largest backer financially to March For Our Lives:
Boy did David Hogg eat those words he said hours ago:
Cameron Kasky (student who first launched the idea of MFOL) makes a valid point here. He woke up a bit.....
Bloomberg is attempting to buy the presidency just as he bought/paid for a movement in order to work towards abolishing the 2nd amendment. This single egocentric man is the greatest threat to our rights as we know it (just ask Virginia).
