SPLC never had a minority in a top position in its 41 year history

SPLC top paid executives.

Far-left “anti-racist” fundraising hustle slammed by watchdog group for extreme hypocrisy.

The SPLC is based in a majority black city, in a majority black county, in the state with the second highest percentage of blacks. Yet, no black person has ever held a top paying position in the SPLC’s 41 year history.

Top paid executives. This is base salary. Morris Dees also gets hundreds of thousands more in bonuses. The SPLC’s highest paid black employee makes less than one third what the man listed as “former COO” on tax records gets paid!

Richard Cohen — President/CEO — $340,923
Morris Dees — Founder and Chief Trial Counsel — $344,771
Michael Toohey, Former COO, $234,309
Joseph Levin — Director and General Counsel — $185,102
Mary Bauer — Legal Director — $168,819
Teenie Hutchinson — Secretary — $162,644
Wendy Via — Development Director — $166,760 (+$19,582)
Mark Potok — Senior Fellow — $162,206  (+$10,814)
David Utter — Director — Miami –  $158,013
Sheila Bedi — Deputy Legal Director –  $129,893

Watching the watchdogs…

Last week, Watching the Watchdogs examined the Southern Poverty Law Center’s latest “hate map” fundraising tool and broke the amazing, astounding, unprecedented news that for the first time in history the number of alleged “hate groups” designated by the SPLC’s Public Relations chief, Mark Potok, (something even the FBI cannot do…), actually DECLINED!!

While this inconceivable turn of events left many investigators gasping in amazement, a quick head-count of the SPLC’s top executives reveals a caucus as Caucasian as it was the day Morris Dees opened the doors of the company in 1971. There are still some unbroken traditions that one can count on in this mad, mad world.

This seeming incongruity was brought to the attention of Mr. Dees 19 years ago by journalists Dan Morse and Greg Jaffe in their week-long exposé in the SPLC’s hometown newspaper, the Montgomery Advertiser, in 1994.
