A pair of remaining high-level Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) held a mysterious meeting in Washington, D.C., Friday amid internal strife and increased scrutiny of the once-revered institution.
“Heidi Beirich and Maureen Costello, Director of the Intelligence Project and Teaching Tolerance respectively, were spotted in downtown DC, coming in and out of the Daily Caller’s building throughout the day,” according to a Daily Caller report.
The Caller reported that Beirich threatened to call the police on one of its reporters for asking questions about sexual harassment allegations levied against now-fired co-founder Morris Dees. But Dees’ sexual proclivities are not a new revelation. It has been well-documented that employees within the SPLC have accused him of such behavior, and Big League Politics reported last year that Dees had been accused of molesting his step daughter with a sex toy during divorce proceedings decades ago.
Far more interesting is the mysterious meeting itself, which took place in The Caller’s building, and which its reporters did not ask about.
That building, in the heart of D.C., is home to 10 companies, including the news organization. The organizations include Grenier Law Group, which specializes in civil litigation and wrongful death suits, the Association Management Center, which manages certifications of membership organizations, Multiplier Capital, a financial firm, a tax accounting firm called GKA, and the National Hispanic Medical Association.
The SPLC directors could have met with any of those organizations, but a few seem more likely than the ones mentioned above.
One organization with which the Center could have met seems to align with their mission. Observatory Group, whose mission “is a to help its clients understand the evolution of [their employees’] views, their biases, their institutions, their political constraints, and ultimately, what actions they will take.” At least in theory, the SPLC’s mission is social justice. Meeting with the Observatory Group would make sense to that end.
Two others are law firms.
Mooney, Green, Saindon, Murphy & Welch is a firm that specializes in “assisting unions in responding to governmental investigations and audits,” according to its website.
Though SPLC is not a union, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has called for a government investigation into the Center’s questionable tax situation, which includes stashing millions in offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands, which is peculiar for a tax-exempt non-profit.
The other law firm, Butsavage & Durkalski, describes itself as having “decades of experience providing counsel to… nonprofit organizations regarding labor and employment matters.”
Big League Politics reached out to all three organizations – the Observatory Group and both law firms. None responded to a comment request.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
