Who Funds Cap?

The Center for American Progress is the new liberal think tank, just launched with a roster of high-profile liberal policy wonks and a $10 million budget. As any veteran of a right-leaning think tank knows, the first question is always “who funds you?” But just try getting an answer out of CAP. While news reports indicate George Soros put up some of the money, there’s no information about their sources of funding here. E-mailing to this address is no more informative. When Joe Bast of the Heartland Institute inquired, “We are funded by interested individuals and foundations” was the sum total of his response.
