Top Democrat Operative Busted Funneling Nearly $2.4 Million From Soros-Funded Super PAC to Her Private Firm
A top Democrat operative from the dark money group behind the botched Iowa caucus app has been caught funneling nearly $2.4 million from the Super PAC she runs to her private firm.
The operative, Tara McGowan, has been caught moving money from her PAC to her private firm in the past, as well.

Top Liberal Operative Funnels Millions From Super PAC to Her Private Firm
“New disclosure forms show that PACRONYM, a super PAC affiliated with McGowan’s nonprofit ACRONYM—the dark money group behind the botched Iowa caucus app—spent close to $2.4 million on anti-Trump ads Wednesday night that will run in the key swing state of Pennsylvania. The money was sent to a for-profit digital consulting firm, Lockwood Strategy Lab, which is also part of McGowan’s network.”
The operative previously worked for Priorities USA Action and President Obama’s reelection campaign. She created ACRONYM in 2016 to oppose the Trump campaign’s online efforts.
The largest donor to PACRONYM was billionaire George Soros, who gave them $1.75 million through his Democracy PAC.
