(Wade Rathke was forced to resign in 2010 for a money scandal)

Actual: Command center of the most potent left wing money machine in the world. No officer receives compensation from Tides Network, but they are compensated by other Tides entities controlled by Tides Network. Tides Network is a non-profit holding company, a shell for other organizations, so it has virtually no funding itself - even though it controls one of the largest financial networks of left wing activists.

Note: Wade Rathke, resigned in 2010, is shown only because later official Tides Network documents are not yet available.
