David Brock controls over a dozen pro-Clinton organizations from his office in Washington D.C., which he also shares with his soliciting firm, the Bonner Group.
The Clinton operative gained notoriety in 2016 after leading Correct The Record, a super PAC paying shills to polish Hillary's image online.
Brock actually began his political career as a controversial critic of the Clintons before converting over to their camp.
After the initial contribution, Brock shifts funds between his different organizations with the Bonner Group charging their modest commission during each transfer.
Here's an explanation of the scheme from The Citizen's Audit:
Say, for example, you donate $1,062,857 to Media Matters for America. This is how David Brock would have used your charitable donation in 2014:
- Media Matters would receive your $1,062,857 donation
- The Bonner Group would earn a $132,857 commission
- Media Matters would retain $930,000
- Next, Media Matters would give what’s left of your entire donation, $930,000, to the Franklin Education Forum
- The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $116,250 commission
- The Franklin Education Forum would retain $813,750
- The Franklin Education Forum would then forward the remaining $813,750 to The Franklin Forum
- The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $101,718 commission
- The Franklin Forum would retain $712,031
The report shows how Brock put little effort in covering up his donation racket. All the organizations with money transfers share the same office and phone numbers.
While heading CTR, Brock targeted the Sanders campaign through demonizing Bernie supporters as misogynist white males, known as “Bernie Bros.”
The Clinton campaign has already recycled the same tactics for the presidential election.
Brock and other Clinton operatives believe targeting the voter base itself derails a campaign through alienating its beliefs from the mainstream. Still, this device only complemented the other tactics of party collusion and electoral fraud.
Published in 1996, The Seduction of Hillary Rodham serves as an early example of Brock's political writing.
The book attacks Hillary as a bitter egotist who developed “a contempt for the democratic process itself” after Bill's notorious affairs (pg. 276-277).
As founder of Media Matters, Brock wages an information war on daily basis through publishing biased content masked as objective analysis of conservative media.
Now, we learn he manipulates the donations to this organization to fuel his shadowy enterprises. It serves as another testament to the murky world of political financing.
