C180455 07/27/2018 Missouri Senate Conservatives Fund American Federation for Children Suite 675 Washington DC 20036 7/26/2018 $27,500.00
The American Federation for Children?:
The American Federation for Children is a 501(c)(4) organization that does lobbying and grassroots advocacy work in the states and Washington, D.C. We are affiliated with the American Federation for Children Action Fund, a political committee that supports and opposes state-level candidates for elected office. We work closely with our educational partner, the American Federation for Children Growth Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, to promote the benefits of—and the need for—school choice, make parents aware of their options, mobilize grassroots supports and ensure private school choice laws work for students.
The American Federation for Children works in states across America to advance our mission. Our headquarters are in Washington, D.C., with state-based staff located in regional offices around the country.
Ah, they’re about defunding and dismantling public education. That’ll work so well in rural Missouri. In the same way right wingnuts blocking Medicaid expansion helped rural access to health care and rural hospitals prosper. Oh, wait.
C180455 07/27/2018 Missouri Senate Conservatives Fund US Term Limits, Inc. Suite 200 Washington DC 20036 7/27/2018 $200,000.00
U.S. Term Limits (USTL), based out of Washington, D.C., advocates for term limits at all levels of government.
In 2016, USTL launched the Term Limits Convention, a new project to enact a constitutional amendment for congressional term limits. Under this approach, state legislators can enact term limits for the Congress in Washington and no member of Congress can stop them.
And that way only lobbyists and special interests, not elected legislators, will hold any legislative institutional memory. Why, that takes us down the road towards kakistocracy and kleptocracy.
And, the usual individuals and right wingnut funded entities:
