The left loves William Barber, but you’re paying his salary. The liberal lecturer made his name protesting nearly every piece of legislatio Republicans proposed after taking control of the North Carolina General Assembly for the first time in more the century back in 2010.
He has since carved out a niche for himself, siphoning millions in government grants to fund his ideological siege on North Carolina and the nation.
According to Repairers of the Breach Inc’s IRS Form 990, in 2017 99.6% of the organization’s $2,514,676 in income came from government grants. In 2018, 98.1% of the organization’s $2,622,139 in income came from your tax dollars. The 2019 Form 990 was not available at the time of publication.
These funds are used to Get Out the Vote (for Democrats), and lobby for pet Democrat legislation. Repairers of the Breach Inc’s “Poor People’s Campaign” advocates, among other things, halting deportations, bailing out insolvent municipalities, Medicaid expansion, and massive tax increases.
