Elusive like the Yeti, yet similar to how most of us CL staffers seem to understand the term, the "deadline" for when exactly an American must buy health insurance according to the Affordable Care Act is awash in a slippery haze of enigmatic mystification.
And in even more perplexing news, after investigators followed the ridiculous money trail left by two secretive Arizona-based nonprofits connected to the Koch Brothers, both mysterious groups have now agreed to pay $1 million in fines for "making millions of unlawful intermediary contributions during the 2012 California campaign season." This is dark money hard at work. The scope of their scam is breathtaking. We're through the looking glass, here, people.
Here is how the California Attorney General explains the malfeasance:
"The investigation revealed that a Virginia nonprofit, Americans for Job Security (AJS), raised approximately $28 million in 2012 for issue advocacy opposing tax increases and supporting "pro-paycheck public policy." Current law permits donors to remain anonymous if their contributions are used for issue advocacy. Shortly before the general election, AJS decided that were it to spend the money on issue advocacy at that time, it would trigger a California law requiring disclosure of the funds' sources. Instead, AJS decided to make multiple donations to another non-profit, CPPR, which has a history of funneling millions of dollars to support conservative causes. AJS expected and hoped that CPPR would be able to find other money to support AJS's efforts in California. AJS gave CPPR a donation of $4.05 million on September 10, 2012, $14 million on October 11, 2012 and $6.5 million on October 19, 2012.
"Following these donations, CPPR made two major contributions of its own. First, on September 11, 2012, CPPR donated $7 million to the Iowa-based American Future Fund (AFF). As an intermediary, AFF then made a contribution of $4.08 million to a third entity, the California Future Fund (CFF). CFF used that money to support Proposition 32 in the California general election.
"CPPR's second contribution occurred on October 12, 2012, in the form of $13 million to ARL. As an intermediary, ARL returned $11 million to California through a contribution to the Small Business Action Committee (SBAC), a campaign committee supporting Proposition 32 and opposing Proposition 30. CPPR's contributions were funneled back to California campaign committees through intermediaries AFF and ARL, which violated civil provisions of the California Political Reform Act of 1974."
