Big money special interests have built vast networks of policy and advocacy groups that wield extraordinary power in Washington and beyond, and are advancing extreme political agendas that harm the American people.
Exposing Extremist Groups and the Mega-Donors Behind Them
Politically motivated organizations that spread falsehoods and misinformation are quietly funded by mega-donors whose self-serving agendas undermine our democracy, civil rights and liberties, and the fabric of our society.
We reveal the connections between these power players and the policymakers who do their bidding, and confront them with their attempts to misinform Americans by fighting back with facts.
Right-wing megadonors spend vast sums of money to further their own interests—at the expense of the American people. Accountable.US works to expose these megadonors, their networks, and their true agendas.
