Multiple shady left-wing organizations were found to have funneled tens of millions in “dark money” towards the campaigns of Joe Biden and other Democrats in the 2020 election cycle, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
One such group is Tides Advocacy, which spent at least $1.6 million in dark money on Democratic and left-wing causes last year. Another is the Sixteen Thirty Fund, which sent at least $60 million to committees and other organizations in support of Biden and other Democrats. Groups like Sixteen Thirty are meant to hide the identities of donors who wish to spend excessive amounts of money on political causes, and the amounts spent in 2020 may exceed previous election cycles.
Among the groups receiving money from Sixteen Thirty are: Victory 2020, which received $5.7 million; American Bridge, which was given $4.4 million; Future Forward, which received $5 million; and Priorities USA Action, at $4.5 million.
Sixteen Thirty operates under the umbrella of Arabella Advisors, a consulting firm in Washington D.C. that is behind multiple dark money organizations such as the New Venture Fund, the Windward Fund, and the Hopewell Fund. In 2019, these four organizations combined raised over $715 million for left-wing causes and candidacies.
The massive use of left-wing dark money is in direct contrast to Biden’s calls on the campaign trail to decrease the use of dark money, where he explicitly called for the “end of dark money groups,” and “increased transparency of election spending.”
