Newt Gingrich & Co. bankrolled 1/3 of $850,000 campaign to remove Iowa Supreme Court justices

ThinkProgress had already disclosed the $200,000 that Gingrich directed from an anonymous donor to the anti-marriage equality group Iowa for Freedom (also funded by AFA Action, the political arm of the virulently homophobic American Family Association.) The Associated Press reported yesterday that one of the cogs in Gingrich’s vast network of business enterprises and front groups, ReAL Action, provided $125,000 to AFA Action. The Des Moines Register reported this morning that ReAL Action also contributed $25,000 to yet another Iowa anti-LGBT group, the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition.
