While figures like George Soros, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg are known for their hefty political donations, few Americans have heard of Arabella Advisors. Even more powerful than these standalone billionaires, Arabella is a secretive “dark money” operation that channels megadonor funds into leftist political causes via pop-up groups designed to look like innocent grassroots outfits.
The sheer quantity of money that has flowed through Arabella’s channels is staggering. In the 2020 election cycle, Arabella’s nonprofits took in $2.4 billion, more than the fundraising of the Democratic and Republican National Committees combined. In the 2022 election cycle, Arabella’s fundraising rose to $3 billion.
In this book, Scott Walter reveals the major role that Arabella has played in battles over Supreme Court nominations, abortion, women’s sports, school discipline, Medicare for All, environmental policies, fake local news outlets, “Zuck Bucks” that manipulate election offices, and much more.
This mountain of money and influence aimed at transforming America explains why even left-leaning major media are alarmed. Arabella is “the indisputable heavyweight of Democratic dark money,” warns the Atlantic. A “dark-money behemoth,” says Politico. An “opaque network,” says the New York Times, that funnels “hundreds of millions of dollars through a daisy chain of groups supporting Democrats and progressive causes.”
Citizens from across the political spectrum will be shocked to learn how Arabella has covertly developed the darkest of “dark money” networks.
