Dark money group, Priority Oregon, launches new attack against Kate Brown

 

A dark money group known as Priority Oregon has just launched a new attack against Kate Brown. This comes at the worst time — right after this happened:

1. Our opponent said that he is planning a campaign budget of $14 million — plenty of money to use on attack ads

AND

2. The Republican Governors Association announced that they raised $113 MILLION to spend on taking out progressive governors like Kate!

Help us fight back by making a grassroots contribution today.

Kate is counting on you to help keep Oregon moving forward. If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

But here’s where it gets really interesting — IRS filings show that the dark money group attacking Kate has ties to a prominent national Republican organization!

According to Oregon Public Broadcasting, “One possible clue to [the group’s] funding emerged Tuesday when the Republican Governors Association reported in an IRS filing that it had exchanged $30,000 worth of research work with Priority Oregon.

We can’t let these attacks go unanswered. Rush a contribution to help Kate stand up to our opponent and his allies.

Thanks for your help,

Donald Trump’s Immigration Policies Are Pure Evil, And They Must Be Stopped

Donald Trump’s and Jeff Sessions’ Cruelty Towards Immigrant Families Has No Bounds

Statement by NOW President Toni Van Pelt

06.13.2018
Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions are turning our nation of immigrants into a country of cruelty. They have issued an edict to forcibly remove young children from the arms of their parents, as families seek refuge from dangerous conditions and lethal violence.   Children are being torn from their parents, shipped off to ‘foster’ families at the taxpayers expense and we have no idea if these families are licensed, speak Spanish or if these children are being labor or sex trafficked. There is no specific law, no regulation, no political consensus to support this obscene and unlawful policy. It is pure pandering to Donald Trump’s morally bankrupt political base. It is legally indefensible.Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions would take a wrecking ball to the Statue of Liberty and replace it with barbed wire and guard dogs.In addition to snatching children from their immigrant parents, AG Sessions has now doubled down on the politics of cruelty by undermining hard-won protections for immigrant women and girls fleeing domestic violence. He has single-handedly changed existing policies that protect tens of thousands of women seeking protection from unimaginable abuse, denying their legal right to apply for asylum in the U.S.

This afternoon at 2pm, in front of the Customs and Border Protection Building, NOW is joining other allies to protest the administration’s despicable actions. NOW calls on Congress to exercise its moral duty to protect immigrant families, particularly women and children. Hearings must be held and legislation drafted to end this reprehensible policy.  If judges and courts are overwhelmed, appoint more judges. If lawmakers refuse to act, then women will lead the charge to replace them at the ballot box. We must take action NOW to ensure these survivors are protected, not persecuted for seeking the inalienable right to safety and freedom.
