Republican Never-Trump Women’s PAC is Funded By Three Democrat Billionaires
A “Republican” Never-Trump PAC for women is funded by three Democrat billionaires — two of which are men.
Republican Women for Progress is founded by Jennifer Lim and Meghan Milloy — anti-Trump women who have previously made headlines for starting a group called “Republican Women for Hillary” and opposing the Supreme Court nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
According to a report from the Washington Free Beacon, Federal Election Commission filings show that the PAC is being bankrolled by a $200,000 donation from Kathryn Murdoch, the liberal daughter-in-law of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, a $400,000 donation from Daniel Tierney, the president of Wicklow Capital and major Democratic Party donor, and a $400,000 donation from Democrat Reid Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn.
“Despite Lim’s claim that they were supported by donors across the political spectrum, the PAC does not show any Republican contributors after Reid’s initial donation,” the Free Beacon reports.
When asked about the fact that they are currently funded by a single liberal male donor, Lim told the Free Beacon that they have “support” from “across the ideological spectrum.
“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,” Lim said. “We are pleased to have the support of donors across the ideological spectrum to ensure the voice of republican women is heard across the country.”
The organization did not respond to questions from the Free Beacon about the fact that all of their donors are Democrats.
