According to finance records, Elon Musk was a Top 50 Donor in the GOP Super PAC Protect the House.
Now reports indicate that Musk was one of the top donors for a Republican PAC named Protect the House.
Filings show that the Tesla and SpaceX CEO donated $38,900 to the PAC, which is dedicated to keeping Republicans in control of Congress. The PAC raised over $8 million in quarter two, according to filings compiled by ProPublica.
The top donors of the PAC include Sheldon Adelson, the Vegas casino magnate, and Robert McNair, the owner of the NFL’s Houston Texans. Although Adelson and McNair’s contributions far outweighed Musk’s — Adelson and McNair each gave $371,500 respectively, while Musk gave $33,900 — Musk was one of the top 50 donors of the PAC.
This revelation is certainly shocking. In an interview for Rolling Stone Musk claimed that Climate Change was the biggest threat of the Century and after Trump left the Paris Climate agreement he stepped down from his role in two White House’s business advisory councils.
