Jeff Yass, a Bala Cynwyd billionaire financial trader and one of the biggest donors to politicians in the country, is feeling betrayed by some of the Republican politicians he supported with massive donations after they later called the presidential election stolen, writes Joseph N. DiStefano for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Over the past six years, Yass donated $43 million to GOP candidates and political action committees nationwide. Club for Growth, a PAC he donated $21 million to over the past two years, spent around $3 million to help elect U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley.
The Missouri politician was a leader among the Republicans who were contesting the election.
Yass expressed his dissatisfaction with the move-in emails to a former stockbroker who is his longtime acquaintance.
“Do you think anyone knew Hawley was going to do that?” Yass wrote. “Sometimes politicians deceive their donors.”
“To be clear – I don’t think the election was stolen,” he also wrote.
The emails were made public by Laura Goldman, a former investment adviser who is now a freelance television producer, in Twitter postings.
