WASHINGTON, DC – Accountable.US today obtained the 2022 990 tax forms for Leonard Leo-linked groups 85 FundBH Fund, and Concord Fund, revealing millions more moving through Leo’s self-enrichment scheme.

Leonard Leo's circular profit scheme — funneling money from his key nonprofits to his for-profit firm — continues, ensuring Leo keeps benefiting from his own dark money network. It’s groups like the 85 Fund and Concord Fund that make it possible for Leo to force his radical agenda on everyday Americans and personally profit at the same time,” said Accountable.US executive director Tony Carrk.

Key findings from new Leonard Leo network 2022 990s:
