TAX DOLLARS = CARL DEMAIO'S PROFIT

Carl DeMaio's former company, the Performance Institute, reaped the majority of its revenue from public funds. Then, DeMaio used that money to push for his own political agenda.

  • DeMaio called the Performance Institute a "private think tank," but unlike other think tanks, it has no board and no oversight.
  • In the past, the Performance Institute did not disclose its donors, or how much its former CEO, Carl DeMaio, made.
  • Yet, in the past, DeMaio has advertised in the "non-profit" section of Craigslist to attract potential staff to the Performance Institute.
