Revolt Against Rebekah Mercer at AMNH
Rebekah Mercer is known as “the first lady of the alt-right.” Not only is she a stakeholder in Breitbart News, but she and her father – hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer – played a major role in getting Donald Trump elected as president.
The Mercer Foundation, run by Rebekah Mercer, has poured millions of dollars into groups that deny climate change – some published estimates say up to $22 million. In fact, Revolting Lesbians research of the Mercer Family Foundation’s tax returns (IRS Forms 990) from 2008 – 2015 shows this amount to be much more: an astounding $42,573,645! One of these groups is the leading climate change denial think tank Heartland Institute which, in their words, “persuaded Trump that man-made global warming is not a crisis.”
So what is Rebekah Mercer doing on the board of trustees at the American Museum of Natural History?
