David Brock is laundering money

David Brock has 7 non-profits, 3 Super PACs, one 527-committee, one LLC, one joint fundraising committee, and one unregistered solicitor crammed into his office in Washington DC.

Uncovered records expose a constant flow of money between these organizations.

The Bonner Group, his professional solicitor, works off a commission. Every time money gets passed around, Bonner receives a 12.5% cut.

David Brock operates over a dozen pro-Clinton organizations from his office in Washington DC. Uncovered records expose a constant flow of money between his organizations. Brock’s unregistered Professional Solicitor, the Bonner Group, receives a 12.5% cut every time money is moved.

There’s a reason why David Brock chooses to house an unregistered Professional Solicitor in his office to raise money for his conglomerate of Super PACs and non-profits.

Professional Solicitors are required to disclose their active solicitation contracts. Brock wants his unregistered solicitor, the Bonner Group, to keep their client list hidden for a very specific reason. Let’s recap

Say, for example, you donate $1,062,857 to Media Matters for America. This is how David Brock would have used your charitable donation in 2014:

Media Matters would receive your $1,062,857 donation The Bonner Group would earn a $132,857 commission Media Matters would retain $930,000 Next, Media Matters would give what’s left of your entire donation, $930,000, to the Franklin Education Forum The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $116,250 commission The Franklin Education Forum would retain $813,750 The Franklin Education Forum would then forward the remaining $813,750 to The Franklin Forum The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $101,718 commission The Franklin Forum would retain $712,031

In the end, Brock’s solicitor would have pocketed $350,825, almost a third of your initial donation! That’s a far cry from the advertised 12.5% commission.

As bizarre as that scenario may sound, this is exactly what David Brock did in 2014. read more

David Brock has something to hide. Just last week, The Daily Caller reported the following:

“Brock’s former long-time live-in boyfriend William Grey (whom Brock has thanked in several of his books) threatened to go to the IRS with damaging information about how Brock was running his Media Matters empire. What did Brock do? He paid Grey $850,000 to keep quiet. Brock reportedly had to sell his home in Rehoboth, Delaware to come up with the money. This certainly seems to indicate that Brock was terrified about what the authorities would uncover.”

Adding to this, Fox News reported the following:

“Grey accused Brock of “financial malfeasance” and threatened to undermine Brock’s fundraising efforts:

“Next step is I contact all your donors and the IRS,” Grey wrote in an email dated May 19, 2010. “This is going to stink for you if you do not resolve this now.””

"Please finish this today so I don’t have to waste my time emailing anyone – Biden, Coulter, Carlson, Huffington, Drudge, Ingraham," Grey wrote in a 2008 email.

Look at the arguments on The Citizens Audit:

The 14 organizations stuffed into Brock’s office in Washington DC The fraudulent tax returns filed by Media Matters for America The dirty money flowing into the conglomerate via his unregistered solicitor, the Bonner Group

This is what environmental groups do. They donate to each other in a shell org circle that comes right back to the original corporation and take all the write offs without ever really donating to anyone but back to themselves. This scam has been going on a long time and why they work so hard at keeping the environmental scam up and running like they do.

Like you say, this has been going on for a long time. I never really saw it the way you describe, but that even makes it more dreadful. C. Boyden Grey has filed a compaint against them with the IRS and maybe this latest Tucker dust-up will move them along.

This has upset me for a long while.

Have a great day!

I have spent about ten years investigating these environmental organizations and found that they all come back around full circle to the same characters and associations . Got too close a couple times, they are seriously protective of this information and do not want these connections exposed.

Thanks again for sharing your great efforts here. Well done and I will keep an eye on it. Please update if more on this pops up!

That’s a fact! It is just incredible how they do this right in front of everyone’s eyes yet no one sees or says anything.

Mass Media...

With the environmental groups it is Feinstein and her husband’s cronies who benefit.

Too many big wigs scratching each other’s backs. Which is why none of them will ever be seeing the inside of a jail cell.

That is a fact... And it is totally bipartisan. Money holds no loyalties.

***I hope somebody - lots of somebodies - take care of this “business” now***

It is illegal for a non-profit (501c3) to conduct partisan political activities. This has been known - and publicly noted - about Brock and his S0r0s funded enterprises. As you say, we hope someone (AG Barr?) puts a stop to this quickly.

It is also time for for-profit MSM orgs such as CNN, MSNBC, etc. to be treated as Political Action Committees since they are clearly partisan. For one thing, their advertisers would have to register as Political donors and be regulated as such.
