Cato Board Member 1997-2003*, DFER Donor in 2007

Peter Ackerman and his wife gave a combined $10,000 to DFER in July of 2007.  Ackerman is a former member of the Cato Institute‘s Board of Directors.

Here’s a list of Cato’s Board of Directors from 2003 (via their 990):

Ackerman isn’t the only member of Cato’s Board of Directors to give DFER money: Jeff Yass (third from the bottom, above) teamed with two business partners, Arthur Dantchik and Jeff Greenberg, to give PA gubernatorial candidate Sen. Anthony Williams $750,000 through DFER in early 2010.  Williams lost in the primary to Dan Onorato.

* = Ackerman may have been a board member pre-1997, but I only have access to Cato 990 tax forms dating back to that year.
