Brady Campaign, Giffords Took COVID PPP Relief Cash Which They Then Funnel to Anti-Gun Candidates
How does it feel to know that your tax dollars are being used by anti-gun organizations to restrict or eliminate your right to keep and bear arms? That’s exactly what’s happening since, as the Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski is reporting, both the Brady Campaign and Giffords have taken Coronavirus Payroll Protection Program (PPP) cash.
The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence received between $350,000 and $1 million on April 10 to support 41 employees, according to the Small Business Administration. The center is the educational arm of the Brady organization, which also features a political advocacy arm, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, as well as the political action committee Brady PAC. In March, the Brady PAC endorsed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and announced it would spend $4 million to help elect him and other gun-control candidates to office.
Liam Sullivan, a spokesman for the Brady Center, defended the loans, saying that the pandemic had affected the organization’s funding and caused it to cancel major fundraising events, including its annual gala.
