Filmmaker Steven Spielberg and his wife, actress Kate Capshaw, have given more than $3.5 million to Democrats since December, with some of the biggest sums going to the organization behind the malfunctioning mobile app that crashed during last week’s Iowa caucuses.
In recent months, the Hollywood power couple has also given money to the campaigns of Democratic Reps. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Ted Lieu, all of whom represent districts in California.
Federal Election Commission records show that the Raiders of the Lost Ark director donated $500,000 in December to PACRONYM, the political fundraising arm of the organization ACRONYM, whose subsidiary Shadow, Inc. created the infamous mobile app. Capshaw donated another $500,000 to the group in December.
ACRONYM is facing accusations that its leaders were biased against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and favored more establishment candidates for president. The group’s leaders reportedly bashed Sanders supporters on a regular basis ahead of the Iowa caucuses. CEO Tara McGowan is married to Michael Halle, a senior strategist with the Pete Buttigieg campaign.
