Those ‘Concerned Women’ Known as the Koch Brothers

From TPM:

An almost completely unknown group with strong ties to the Koch brothers has identified itself as the secret source of almost a quarter of a billion dollars received by conservative political groups in 2012.

The group, Freedom Partners, raised $256 million in the year following its creation in November 2011, and made grants totaling $236 million to conservative groups, according to Politico, which was shown a draft of an IRS document the group plans to file shortly.

The list of groups that benefited from Freedom Partners’ funding is a roster of conservative organizations large and small: $115 to the Center to Protect Patient Rights, $32.3 million to Americans for Prosperity, $15.7 million to the 60 Plus Association, $13.6 million to the American Future Fund, $8.2 million to the Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee….

Because if there is one thing that is even less connected to the consituency that it claims to represent than HRC or NCTE, its CWFA.
