Arabella Advisors, CTCL, and Partisan Use of Nonprofits

Hayden Ludwig on Kim Monson Show podcast

On the Kim Monson Show podcast, Hayden Ludwig discusses CRC’s work on Arabella Advisors, Center for Tech and Civil Life (CTCL), “Zuck bucks,” and the partisan use of nonprofits.

Ludwig explains how Arabella Advisors accepts money from large left-wing foundations to run political campaigns through its nonprofits, while hiding the original sources of the funding. Often, its nonprofits create “pop-ups” that are little more than a website created to give the impression that a campaign is grassroots when it is actually run from the Arabella offices in Washington, DC. Arabella and its minions have run multiyear attack campaigns to advance a variety of left-wing causes.

Some Arabella money also went to CTCL, apparently to fund a trial run of targeting grants to election offices in Wisconsin. This prepared the way for the massive influx of funding from Mark Zuckerberg, which helped turn out votes for Joe Biden, especially in swing states, in the 2020 presidential election.

Hayden’s 39-minute segment begins at 1:11:54.
