Prosecute the torture.

CPAC Underwriting

Did you know that the Conservative Political Action Conference is going on this weekend?

You did?

That's nice.  Wanna know how much Scaife money is intertwined at there?

Ok, here's what I did.  I started from this page and then cross referenced it with the info at this page and this page and then I limited the data to only that which was available in the last ten years or so (everything from 2003 to be specific) and this is what I found.

For the various sponsors and exhibitors I found, the Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations have given a total of $32 million.  Here's the breakdown:
  • Accuracy In Media ($750,000 from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • American Enterprise Institute ($4.225 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • America's Survival ($1.115 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Capital Research Center ($1.945 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Center for Security Policy ($2.66 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Competitive Enterprise Institute ($2.45 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • David Horowitz Freedom Center ($2.35 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Foundation for Individual Rights ($1.025 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Heartland Inst ($75,000 from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Heritage Foundation ($6.6 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Independent Women's Forum ($850,000 from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Intercollegiate Studies Institute ($3.125 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Judicial Watch ($1.15 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • Media Research Center ($2.7 million from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • National TaxPayers Union ($595,000 from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
  • NumbersUSA ($525,000 from Sarah Scaife and Carthage Foundations)
And again, that just represents just some of the money (from 2003) that's gone to some of the conservative organizations at CPAC.

So when the Tribune-Review decides to reprint, say, the Washington Post's coverage of Mitt Romney at CPAC, just remember how much money the Trib's owner has shuffled off to the various organizations supporting the conference.
