The Southern Poverty Law Center, which promotes itself as a champion for the poor and oppressed, has amassed a $319 million fortune, part of it stashed away in offshore bank accounts, according to its latest posted tax return.

Over the last six years, this left-leaning organization has made deep inroads into Alabama’s Republican supermajority.

Their 2015 taxes show the Montgomery-based nonprofit’s notorious endowment has now swelled to historical levels, up from $302 million the year before.
