The liberals over at Fuse Washington are trying to convince their supporters to donate to them by participating in GiveBIG, the Seattle-area’s annual philanthropy push. The online charitable giving event is in its 6th year.
A recent email from Fuse states:
“Today, The Seattle Foundation is once again hosting GiveBIG, a special gift-matching event where your gift to Fuse will be stretched even further…
“Unlike our opponents, we’re not funded by out-of-state billionaires or greedy corporations.”
It’s unclear who the “opponents” are that are supposedly funded by “out-of-state billionaires or greedy corporations.” But, Fuse’s assertion about its financial purity is laughable.
In fact, it is Fuse Washington that relies on the support of liberal billionaires. California billionaire Tom Steyer funnels millions through organizations like Fuse in hopes of achieving his agenda in our state. Then, of course, there is the support of in-state billionaire Nick Hanauer and the greedy special interests co-op known as the Progress Alliance of WA that Fuse relies on.
The liberals over at Fuse would, of course, deny all this… though they’ll never open their books to let the public see their donors.
