Tulsi Gabbard's Financial Disclosures Leave Out Ties To Koch-Funded Think Tank

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Here’s something you might not know about U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: She’s an advisor to a Charles Koch-funded foreign policy think tank based at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

One of the reasons that’s a surprise is because it’s nowhere to be found on her latest financial disclosure form.

The revelation comes in a new report from Sludge, an investigative news site that tracks money in politics, that highlights the Koch connection to the university’s Center for the Study of Statesmanship. The center was founded in 2017 through a $2.35 million grant from the billionaire’s foundation.

Gabbard, who’s running for president in the Democratic primary, is one of a dozen advisors to the center with strong ties to the Charles and David Koch network — which the author calls “The Kochtopus.”

Makes sense. She's not a big fan of Obama.

4. Somethings stinks

Why are we still calling her a Democrat? She should be put on probation, if there is such a thing.

6. Yes

 

It's a Koch-link think tank that she was hiding.

Foreign policy is more than wars.

20. Let's see:

Intervention in the Lebanese Civil War, invasion of Grenada, escalation of the Cold War, and a huge military buildup. Not to mention Iran/Contra and the CIA's meddling in South America.

Again, thanks for your concern.

14. Like those of the Koch cabal?

From the link in the OP:

"The billionaire brothers have used their wealth to reshape American politics by pushing far-right, libertarian policies through the use of campaign donations and dark money.

They also spent millions trying to infuse their ideas into institutions of higher learning, from Catholic University to Florida State and George Mason."


These "policies?"

16. They fund NOVA on PBS...that does not make NOVA a far-right show.

 

Not every organization that they fund is the DEVIL.

17. Weak argument

NOVA is not a political organization, but CSS is. Thanks for your concern.

8. Perhaps she will have time to make an amended filing

of her disclosure statement and get things corrected now that she has been caught.

13. Correct me

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Koch family, get started by doing oil exploration work, for the Soviet Union in WW2? Seems I read that somewhere.
