David Brock & an a Major Prog Donor Collected $700,000 to Pay Women to Make Sexual Accusations Against Trump Before the Election

The New York Times dropped this nugget at six pm on New Years Eve. You know, for maximum coverage. Like Hillary's Christmas Eve debate with Bernie Sanders.

In addition, the article was written in such a way as to hide the main information it was ostensibly conveying. Seriously, try reading the article. Rather than just reporting this big huge new information, it attempts to be a "context" article, mixing this information with old news, like Mike Cernovich offering $10,000 to any "VICTIMS" (as he specified) of sexual harassment by Congressmen.

Old news -- minor news. And yet the New York Times gives that the prominence in the article to make the actual news seem like no big deal.

I know this has been covered, but the Times is obviously trying to hide this, and it's possible someone out there actually missed it.

So give Sexton's recap -- where he puts the actual lede in the lead position-- a read.

A nonprofit group founded by the Democratic activist David Brock, which people familiar with the arrangements say secretly spent $200,000 on an unsuccessful effort to bring forward accusations of sexual misconduct against Mr. Trump before Election Day, is considering creating a fund to encourage victims to bring forward similar claims against Republican politicians…

Ms. Allred's daughter, the lawyer Lisa Bloom, seized on the political potency of sexual harassment charges against Mr. Trump not long after he clinched the Republican presidential nomination. She said she reached out to a pro-Clinton "super PAC" -- though she declined to identify which one -- for money to help her vet a sexual misconduct claim against Mr. Trump.

...

Ms. Bloom would not identify the donors. But two Democrats familiar with the arrangements said a nonprofit group founded by Mr. Brock, American Bridge 21st Century Foundation, gave $200,000, while the fashion entrepreneur Susie Tompkins Buell, a major donor to Mr. Brock's suite of groups, gave $500,000 to Ms. Bloom's firm for the last-ditch effort.
