The CEO Anschutz Entertainment Group, Philip Anschutz, allegedly donated thousands dollars to Republicans that were anti-LGBTQ, pro-life and other parties looking to protect the majority Republicans over Democrats in any respective house Congress.  

When his spending habits hit the headlines, Philip released a statement saying it’s “nothing more than fake news,” adding: “I unequivocally support the rights all people without regard to sexual orientation. We are fortunate to employ a wealth diverse individuals throughout our family companies, all whom are important to us – the only criteria on which they are judged is the quality their job performance; we do not tolerate discrimination in any form.”

Fader has since published another piece, alleging Philip has continued to shell out the cash to Republican organizations. The publication reports that $5,400 was given to Senator Cory Gardner, who is widely known as being pro-gun. Senator Scott Tipton, who opposes same-sex marriage and abortion, apparently received $2,700.

Philip’s biggest contribution was $138,000 to the National Republican Senate Committee.
