Heritage Foundation on Scaife/Tanton Connection: “We Do Not Have Anyone Available to Interview for This”

Late last night our Publisher @julito77 emailed a request for comment from The Heritage Foundation about two Latino Rebels stories about how the family foundations of Richard M. Scaife, the Vice Chairman of the Heritage’s Foundation Board of Trustees, had been donating millions of dollars for years to anti-immigration organizations linked to John Tanton.

This afternoon, Heritage’s Daniel Woltornist emailed us the following response:


Hi Julio,

Unfortunately, we do not have anyone available to interview for this. Sorry we couldn’t work something out.

The email was unclear whether Heritage will comment on this story eventually, whether they don’t have anyone available right now to comment, or whether this email is a “no comment.” We have left a message with Woltornist for clarification.
