Binge Read: Netflix, The Mueller Report, And That Massage Parlor in Florida

Editor’s Note: At the end of each week, The Stacks rounds up the most important takeaways from campaign finance reporting around the country.

It’s Friday so we’ll get right to it.

Netflix’s CEO has some explaining to do [Popular Information]

Shortly after Netflix issued a statement on Georgia’s new abortion law stating that it will stop filming in the state if the legislation is implemented, portraying itself as “an unflinching supporter of abortion rights,” the company’s CEO’s relevant political contributions came to light: “over the last 10 months, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings donated $143,000 to 73 Republican members of the Missouri legislature (and Governor Mike Parsons) who just passed an abortion ban nearly as restrictive as Georgia”… and while “some dismiss these kinds of donations, accepting that powerful people donate equally to both parties. But, over the same period, Hastings only donated $10,700 to Missouri Democrats.”

Nancy Pelosi Uses Robert Mueller’s Remarks to Push Anti-Corruption Bill [Observer]

On Wednesday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller made his first public remarks on the Russia investigation since delivering his report to the Department of Justice. On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released a statement, which concluded: “We call upon the Senate to pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, to protect our election systems. We salute Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team for his patriotic duty to seek the truth.”

Under H.R. 1:

  • The federal government would match contributions of $200 or less.
  • The president and vice president would be required to disclose 10 years of tax returns.
  • Social media companies would be required to disclose funding for political ads.

Mayor de Blasio’s Nonprofit Got Developer Checks After $12M Deal – And A Call [The City]

After the city handed out contracts, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio jumped on the phone and hit up the rewarded developers for money, with several of these developers making $20,000 to $25,000 contributions to Campaign for One New York: “The account of the 2015 calls surfaced Tuesday when city Department of Investigation officials disclosed new portions of a heavily censored internal report obtained last month by THE CITY under a Freedom of Information Law request.”

A hefty donation to Trump’s inaugural comes under scrutiny [AP]

Real estate mogul Franklin Haney’s $1 million contribution to President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee has come under scrutiny by federal prosecutors in New York as part of a probe into the committee’s finances, including whether donors received benefits after making contributions: “The contribution from Haney, a prolific political donor, came as he was seeking regulatory approval and financial support from the government for his long-shot bid to acquire the mothballed Bellefonte Nuclear Power Plant in northeastern Alabama.” The prosecutors are working off of information from Trump’s former personal attorney and so-called fixer Michael Cohen.

Haney is a prolific political donor who has made hundreds of donations to politicians and organizations on both sides of the aisle:

Federal prosecutors demand Cindy Yang records from Mar-a-Lago, Trump campaign [Miami Herald]

The Floria massage parlor at the center of the scandal involving New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is back in the news after federal prosecutors sent subpoenas to Mar-a-Lago and Trump Victory, a fundraising committee, as part of a probe into GOP donor (and spa owner) Cindy Yang: “Yang, a South Florida massage-parlor entrepreneur, is the target of a public corruption investigation seeking to determine if she funneled money from China to the president’s re-election campaign or otherwise violated campaign-finance laws.”

The NRA Made Unreported Donations to a Charity Led by Wayne LaPierre’s Wife [The Trace]

The NRA Foundation, which classifies itself a “charitable organization,” is the nonpolitical arm of the NRA, allowing it to accept tax-deductible contributions, receiving tens of millions of dollars each year. A majority of these contributions are from small donors. The foundation directs around $20 million towards the NRA’s gun-safety, training, and hunting programs, with the rest going to gun clubs and ranges, youth shooting groups, and “organizations researching the Second Amendment.”

Charitable groups are required to describe the amount, nature, and recipients of grants in annual tax filings. But the NRA failed to disclose at least $180,000 in donations to Youth for Tomorrow, a Christian organization that happens to be run by executive vice-president of the NRA and an ex-officio trustee of the foundation Wayne LaPierre’s wife, Susan.

This discovery could have extensive implications, as former attorney in the IRS’s chief counsel’s office, Philip Hackney, said New York State attorney general Letitia James will look into these transactions to see if they “were part of a repeat pattern involving the LaPierres, deliberate concealment, and violations of duty of loyalty to the NRA.” If the AG finds wrongdoing, she has the power to “ask for those funds to be returned to the foundation, and potentially have Wayne LaPierre removed as an NRA officer.”
