Here is the text of SenatorJPO's Patreon press release:
As you might know, I portray a character online known as "SenatorJPO."
It's my outlet for disseminating public-policy perspectives that might be too tendentious for some status-quo keepers, but ultimately further my goal of influencing public opinion!
Online speculation about me being "funded by the Koch Brothers, Scott Walker, etc." inspired me to create a Patreon page so that I can finally get paid to do, what I already am doing online:
(Whether the Kochs or the Walker Administration or some interest group donates, is immaterial to what I actually write.)
Anyway, I've notified you so that you (and your SenatorJPO-reading friends) can be among the first to donate!
I offer a few unique "perks" on my rewards page, to which all donors are entitled when contributing at respective tiers.
I look forward to hearing from you on Patreon!
SenatorJPO and WPR Rebuttal
