Donations for the Blatant Deception

Data from the Colorado Secretary of State Tracer for the campaign opposing funding education via Amendment 73 is now available. Ultimately, 143 donations were recorded from 123 individuals and corporations. Some individuals made personal donations as well as donations from their corporations. Some also then made additional donations from spouses and other relatives with the same last name. Some are not even from Colorado.

***Not all donations are reported correctly. Individuals are to be logged and reported to the SOS with their individual address, not business address. Additionally, employers are to be listed.

We told you about Firstbank, because it used to be our bank and we were shocked and upset! You can read that here, and based on the fact that the article went viral without us doing anything to promote that, you care. We have since closed our accounts there, you can read about our change and join us in our new partnership here!

Interestingly, Firstbank is an employee owned corporation but none of the employee owners we met while closing accounts were even aware of the donation being made. Many were upset when they found out.

We also told you about a few of the other organizations in these articles:

Economic Leadership for Colorado from the Bahamas

Do you have $1,039,673 extra this month? We found out who does!

You asked us for the list of banks, so we have sorted the donations to include just that here, first by the amount they donated:
