          "The left-wing Coalition for a Fair and Independent Judiciary has launched a series of advertisements aimed at defeating Alito.  The group describes itself as 'a national coalition of public interest organizations,' and includes NARAL Pro-Choice America, the NAACP, the National Organization for Women, and Americans United for Separation of Church and State among others.  The Alliance for Justice, People For the American Way, and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights head the coalition.

          "Many of these groups are very well-funded, getting most of their money from foundations.  Among the foundations bankrolling them are the philanthropic arms of many of America’s largest corporations."

News Story:  Funding of Anti-Alito Groups
As published in the Washington Times 12-16-05

HEAD: Bankrolling the left

PUBLICATION:  Washington Times, 12/16/05, page A5

          "Wal-Mart, Ford Motor Co., AT&T Corp. and Fannie Mae are among the major U.S. corporations whose foundations fund the liberal groups now waging war against Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr.'s nomination to the Supreme Court, Human Events reporter Timothy P. Carney writes at www.humaneventsonline.com.

          "The left-wing Coalition for a Fair and Independent Judiciary has launched a series of advertisements aimed at defeating Mr. Alito.  The group describes itself as 'a national coalition of public interest organizations,' and includes NARAL Pro-Choice America, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the National Organization for Women and Americans United for Separation of Church and State, among others. 

          "The Alliance for Justice, People For the American Way and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights head the coalition [the Coalition for a "Fair" and Independent Judiciary].

          "The AT&T Foundation, for example, has contributed about $1 million since 2000 to groups that now actively are opposing Judge Alito's confirmation, Mr. Carney said.  It has also given $675,000 to the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Foundation and $120,000 to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF).  The AT&T Foundation also has given about $200,000 to the NAACP or its affiliates.

          "The Fannie Mae Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the secondary mortgage giant Fannie Mae -- officially a government-sponsored enterprise -- also prolifically funds anti-Alito groups, Human Events said.  The Fannie Mae Foundation funds the CBC Foundation and the NAACP.  In the past, the foundation also has funded the Alliance for Justice and MALDEF.

          "While Wal-Mart is under attack from the left [for it's stance on "right to work without belonging to a labor union"], some of its philanthropic money is bankrolling the left's attacks on Mr. Alito.

          "Wal-Mart's foundation gave the CBC Foundation $25,000 in 2003."
