Toulouse Oliver touts support from dark money enviro-Marxist groups

Last week, far-left Democrat Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver announced to her campaign donors that she had snagged the endorsements of the enviro-Marxist groups, the Rio Grande Chapter of Sierra Club, and Conservation Voters of New Mexico(CVNM).

Toulouse Oliver argued in her fundraising plea that if Democrats reelect her as secretary of state, then that will help “climate change” alarmist Democrats win elections in the state. 

“The people of New Mexico are proud of our environmental heritage, and we want to make sure our politicians reflect those values. From record-breaking temperatures to bigger and stronger wildfires – we are seeing the effects of the climate crisis on our doorstep. We need to be able to rely on our elections to be safe, transparent, and accessible in order to elect representatives who will take action on the issues that matter to us,” her team wrote. 

“That’s why we’re proud to be endorsed by the Rio Grande Chapter of Sierra Club and Conservation Voters of New Mexico!” 

CVNM is the state affiliate of the Soros-funded League of Conservation Voters, which has been a big player in state races across the country. The group’s affiliated political action committee (PAC), Verde Voters Fund, spent big in the 2018 midterms, as well as in 2020. The dark money “social justice” group, like others Toulouse Oliver has been funded by, launders its dark money through its 501(c)4 organization and then donates to the PAC, thereby washing the money clean of its origins from public view. According to the New Mexico Campaign Finance System, the Verde Voters Fund has $117,629.56 cash on hand. 

The Sierra Club is a dark money fringe group funded by many sources, including billionaires George Soros and Mike Bloomberg, as well as a Tom Steyer-affiliated PAC, Next Gen Climate Action. 

As we previously reported about Toulouse Oliver taking money from dark money-funded PACs:

On her donation pages, Toulouse Oliver constantly writes, “Maggie Toulouse Oliver serves the state of New Mexico as Secretary of State, where she is dedicated to fighting for clean and fair elections devoid of dark money and outside influence.”

She also writes on the official New Mexico Secretary of State website, “I’ll keep working to shine a light on dark money wherever possible.”

However, her latest campaign filing proves that her supposed “fight” against “dark money” is a big lie. In the fourth primary report she filed with her office on July 7th, the Secretary of State listed a $5,200 donation from “Open Democracy PAC.”

The organization is almost exclusively a front group that is funded by a dark money 501(c)(4) organization, “Sixteen Thirty Fund,” or sometimes written as “1630 Fund,” according to filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

According to POLITICO, “The Open Society Foundations, founded by liberal mega-donor George Soros, also lists nearly $17 million in 2020 grants to the Sixteen Thirty Fund on its website.” 

Now, it appears Toulouse Oliver is doubling down on getting support from dark money sources despite claiming to be “fighting” against dark money in New Mexico politics.

  1. Nancy Tannenbaum

    This creature is like the rest of the regime – a lying scumbag. As bad as they are, even worse are the useful idiots who vote them in.

  2. Now stopping election cheating like Dominion is climate change. These idiots can’t even keep their talking points straight.

  3. “will help “climate change” alarmist Democrats win elections in the state. “…gee, how you think she would do that??? By fixing the results?

  4. Maggie = "Selection" Not Election

    What a short memory Maggie has. No, the largest wildfire in NM history wasn’t due to “climate change” it was started by US Forest Service and it took them 3 months to put it out (intentional?).
    Radical environmentalist donate to Maggie to get candidates selected and implement their “you will own nothing and be happy/green new deal”agenda.
    Look at the Netherlands, the gov’t is tring to take away land from farmers (due to “climate crisis) and give the land to illegals.
    Think it won’t happen here? The gov’t aleady burned hundreds of homes and every state/federal gov’t agency you can think of is running around all over those areas.

  5. Our current SOS is just as much a liar as our current governor. They both need to be replaced this November. We do not need or want liars and thieves controlling New Mexico!

  6. The biggest of democrap lies #climatechange

    Fake News from an evil democrap. Climate change b.s. propaganda from the democrap, socialist, communist party.
