The Washington Free Beacon, picking up on earlier Red Mass Group reporting, further examined who is behind the Colorado Astroturfers known as Progress Mass.
Powerful national progressive interests fund the left-wing messaging operation in Massachusetts behind an anti-Scott Brown attack site, despite claims that the operation is merely a grassroots, local project.
Sponsors of ProgressMass include numerous members of the Democracy Alliance, the secretive network of wealthy Democratic donors assembled by billionaire George Soros in 2005.
“This organization is not going to be around in Massachusetts on November 7,” Rob Eno, publisher of the insider Massachusetts political blog Red Mass Group, told the Free Beacon. “This is such a blatant obvious ruse to attack Scott Brown. It’s a front group.”

The Free Beacon further goes on to explain that the people that bring you ProgressMass and ProgressNow are the same ones that bring you Demos. The 501(c)3 “charity” run by Elizabeth Warren’s daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi.
The Tides Foundation, founded by Democracy Alliance board member and ProgressNow adviser Drummond Pike, has given at least $410,000 worth of grants to ProgressNow and its state affiliates.
ProgressMass is not the only nationally powered and funded organization setting up shell groups to attack Brown: The Demos Foundation, chaired by Warren’s daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi, is funding a group led by former ACORN employees to send out voter registration letters to nearly 500,000 welfare recipients in the state. Demos, like ProgressMass, is backed by the Democracy Alliance-linked Tides Foundation.
It’s a powerful progressive network, working in unison to elect Elizabeth Warren. A network that Warren’s daughter helps helm.
Sunlight truly is the best disinfectant.
