Oh: "Republican" PAC That Attacks Republicans Turns Out to Be Bankrolled By... Liberal Billionaires

Ohhhhhhh.

What a surprise.

Lot of this going on, huh?

A prominent 'Republican' women's political action committee that regularly receives national media attention for its criticisms of President Donald Trump and the GOP is bankrolled by three liberal billionaire donors and activists, Federal Election Commission filings show.

Republican Women for Progress, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, was founded by Jennifer Lim and Meghan Milloy, both former employees of Republican organizations. The duo also previously founded Republican Women for Hillary and spoke at the Democratic National Convention in the past.

...

Despite Lim's claim that they were supported by donors across the political spectrum, the PAC does not show any Republican contributors after Hoffman's initial donation.

The PAC pulled in an additional $200,000 from Kathryn Murdoch, the progressive activist daughter-in-law of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, and $400,000 from Daniel Tierney, the president of Wicklow Capital, a Chicago-based investment firm, filings show.

Both Murdoch and Tierney are major donors to Democratic campaigns and PACs.

Hey, I wonder if any of these public-spirited billionaires want to buy a used magazine, slightly worn, barely read?
