By taking in $15 million dollars in 2012, FreedomWorks had their best fundraising year ever, and they had a lot of help from
average people four individuals.
The numbers come from an annual tax report FreedomWorks filed earlier this year. The document shows that the four unnamed contributors donated at least $1 million each, including one who gave nearly $4.9 million.
According to The Center for Public Integrity, 106 unnamed donors gave the FreedomWorks at least $5,000 each in 2012.
FreedomWorks’ influence on capital hill shouldn’t be overstated, but there are a not-insignificant number of congressmen and women whose votes are influenced by the organization. An organization primarily funded by just four wealthy individuals.
