Dangerous Liberal #11: Peter Lewis

Posted: Jan 11, 2011 7:29 AM
From our January cover story "The 50 Most Dangerous Liberals in America":


Businessman and Billionaire Liberal Financier; Chairman of Progressive Insurance

It's not just George Soros who serves as the Orphan Annie Left's Daddy Warbucks. There's another major financier the Left turns to with their collective hand out, begging for cash: Soros friend and Progressive Insurance chairman Peter Lewis.

Over the last 10 years, Lewis, whose Florida home is festooned with numerous paintings of communist dictator Mao Zedong, has been right behind Soros in giving to pet causes such as pot legalization and to liberals seeking to fundamentally transform America. Though he's probably best known for his tens of millions of dollars in donations to the ACLU over the last decade ($25 million from just 2001-2006), his real agenda is propping up radical left-wing causes, including millions upon millions of dollars to the now-defunct America Coming Together and Joint Victory Fund (the 2004 fundraising arm of the Democrat Shadow Party, which sought support from only hard-Left donors), MoveOn.org, Media Matters, Democracy Alliance and the Center for American Progress.
