Edit note

I removed the statement that AFP was founded in 2003 "with money from the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation" as I can't find a source for this. I have checked the 2003 and 2004 returns of the foundation and AFP is not listed there. It may be that the group was founded with $ from one of the other Koch foundations. So pending finding a primary reference I have moved this statement off the article page.--Bob Burton 19:55, 17 February 2009 (EST)

Edit note

User:JackStone posted the following unreferenced material on the article page - I have removed it pending the addition of a better source than Perdue's role as donoe being "acknowledged as a major donor in AFP events". --Bob Burton 16:32, 30 August 2009 (EDT)

"The largest donor to Americans for Prosperity, Richard Perdue, has announced grants exceeding $1 million, and has been publicly acknowledged as a major donor in AFP events."

Edit note 2

I relocated this off the article page -- I'm not sure that a comment from a Daily Kos user necessarily means it should be featured on the article page.--Bob Burton 20:08, 9 September 2009 (EDT)

and "North Carolina's Karl Rove" by a contributor to Daily Kos.[1]

The following material was unreferenced and the current Whois registration data doesn't support this statement.--Bob Burton 06:09, 10 September 2009 (EDT)
