On Monday, the Campaign for Accountability released a detailed report on Obria’s financial history pointing out how successful its deceptive strategy has been: “Obria has been at the vanguard of [crisis pregnancy centers] trying to camouflage their religious operations in order to receive federal funding,” the group wrote.
"The Campaign for Accountability’s report, “Trolling For Title X Funds,” details Obria Group’s rise as an anti-choice clinic network, applying for and receiving state and federal funds along the way."
"Alice Huling, counsel for the Campaign for Accountability, a watchdog fighting a recent change in federal rules on what kinds of clinics can receive federal funds for healthcare services, said Google was usually the first resource for a woman with an unplanned pregnancy."
"Alice Huling, counsel for the nonprofit watchdog organization Campaign for Accountability (CfA), has researched FRC’s connections to the Trump administration."
"We’re concerned by a recent report from the Campaign for Accountability that indicates the '[private] solar industry revealed promises of clean energy at reduced cost have proven deceptive” and that “unscrupulous actors have exploited vulnerable populations, preying on the elderly and those on fixed incomes.'"
"Google and federal regulators have tended to have an especially close relationship when it comes to driverless cars. The Obama administration, for instance, took an innovation-friendly approach that sometimes translated into 'regulators reaching out to Google asking them how to write the rules,' said Daniel Stevens, executive director of the Campaign for Accountability, a nonprofit watchdog group"
"The watchdog Campaign for Accountability, which already is suing HHS over access to documents connected to the policy changes, is considering asking the agency's inspector general office to investigate how the money is being used — and trying to rally Congress to get involved."
"[Campaign for Accountability] now wants Kania to be removed as treasurer of the Susan B. Anthony List, an advocacy group that opposes abortion rights. The List is a nonprofit, and previous tax filings identify Kania as its treasurer. Federal Elections Commission reports show he also serves as treasurer for one of its political committees. That fund spent $755,797 on national political activism last year, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics."
"In a letter to the executive director of one of the groups, the Campaign for Accountability, Inspector General Mary L. Kendall wrote that her office 'received seven complaints, including yours, from a wide assortment of complainants alleging various conflict of interest and other violations by then deputy secretary of the interior, David Bernhardt.'"
"In 2017, [...] Campaign for Accountability filed a complaint with the Department of Justice, asking for an investigation into whether Bernhardt had violated the Lobbying Disclosure Act by continuing to work on behalf of Westlands, despite having formally ended his lobbying activity. According to the group’s executive director, Daniel Stevens, it never got a response."
