Scott Walter Talks About Arabella with Brian Thomas

Scott Walter on the Brian Thomas Morning Show

CRC’s Scott Walter recently appeared on The Brian Thomas Morning Show to talk about his latest book, Arabella: The Dark Money Network of Leftist Billionaires Secretly Transforming America.

Although relatively unknown in the public eye, the Arabella Network’s influence is felt within the electoral and political landscapes. Arabella Advisors is itself a for-profit consulting firm that manages six nonprofit organizations which have created hundreds of pop-up projects acting as grassroots organizations. The network is capable of funneling millions in dark money between its projects and the nonprofit 501(c)(3)s and 501 (c)(4)s while allowing funding to go towards numerous left-of-center policy campaigns. Through the contributions of wealthy left-wing billionaires like Warren Buffett, a vast amount of donations can be applied through the network towards numerous Democrat policy campaigns from green energy and transgender advocacy to state ballot initiatives and election reform. During the 2020 election cycle alone, over $2 billion in dark money was funneled through the network, more than the Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee combined that year, with the network raking an additional $3 billion in the 2022 election cycle through its nonprofits.
