CAUGHT RED-HANDED: Iowa Evangelical Leader Took $95,000 Payment Before DeSantis Endorsement

On Tuesday, Bob Vander Plaats, an evangelical leader from Iowa, announced his endorsement for Governor Ron DeSantis in the 2024 presidential race.

In a FOX interview, Vander Plaats proudly declared his endorsement of the Florida governor for the presidency.

Only 24 hours later, Vander Plaats acknowledged on national television that groups aligned with DeSantis had contributed $95,000 to his Family Leader Foundation prior to his endorsement.


As reported by Breitbart:

A top evangelical leader in Iowa, Bob Vander Plaats, confirmed Tuesday that his organization received $95,000 from what Reuters originally described as the “DeSantis campaign, a super PAC linked to him and a nonprofit group” before he endorsed the governor’s presidential election.

Fox News’s Bret Baier questioned Vander Plaats on the report, which asserts that Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R-FL) campaign and groups associated with him gave a total of $95,000 to the nonprofit, the Family Leader Foundation, which Vander Plaats heads up.

At the time, Reuters pointed to campaign finance reports “and a document prepared by an Iowa state lawmaker who was helping the Vander Plaats organization raise money for a July 14 presidential candidate forum.”

“Well, it’s definitely true,” Vander Plaats told Baier, encouraging “everybody to read the Reuters article.”

“Everything we do is above board,” he added.

How’s that for Zionist funding?
After all, it’s the ‘Evangelical Christian Community’ that derides and belittles itself by saying that the J3w$ are ‘God’s chosen people’ when in fact the J3w$ are demonic and Christ Himself rebuked them all!
The Christian is ‘God’s Chosen People’ having been bought by the Blood of His Son Jesus Christ!
Most mainstream Christianity is demonically corrupted, and financed with Zionist campaign donations and money.
