Never-Trump Figure Evan McMullin Reportedly Being Funded By Anti-American Persian Billionaire

Evan McMullin was the 2016 candidate put forth by conservative never-Trumpers like Bill Kristol. Even after losing badly, McMullin has continued to play a small role in politics, usually to bash Trump. But it turns out he’s got some shady funding behind him.

How dishonestly messed up is our public life?

Evan McMullin, the “Republican” pretending to be a patriotic opponent of Trump, is being funded by the same Persian billionaire who’s backing The Intercept, Glenn Greenwald and the Iran Firsters.

McMullin’s recently founded non-profit organization, Stand Up Republic, jumped into the Alabama Senate race this week with a $500,000 ad buy against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. One of the ads features a man saying Roy Moore “makes Republicans and us Christians look bad.”

The massive ad buy “may end up being one of the largest third-party interventions in the state,” according to the Washington Post.

One of McMullin’s large Silicon Valley donors is billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, who funded an anti-Trump super PAC during the presidential campaign.

Omidyar announced a $250,000 donation to Stand Up Republic in May through his organization, Democracy Fund. (Democracy Fund publicizes all its grants in the interest of transparency.)
