This is really some positive news for “rightward-leaning” activist organizations. For a few years now, we’ve been complaining that the Dept of Justice (DoJ) has been funneling penalty/fine money from bank settlements to leftist non-profits. Essentially, leftists in government agencies have been extorting banks and other organizations for forced “donations” to their favored leftist organizations…these same organizations who fight against the very principles/values you hold dear. This has been particularly frustrating for us at RTP, knowing that our ideological adversaries are flush with cash while we struggle for every ounce of resources we can cobble together. Finally with this news today we can find some relief in that at least some small portion of the these funds will no longer be weaponized against us. Hooray to Attorney General Jeff Sessions!
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new policy prohibiting payouts to third parties in settlements reached by the Justice Department.
