Richard and Elizabeth Uihlein, owners of Uline shipping supply company located in Pleasant Prairie, WI, and major donors to Republican candidates including President Donald Trump, contributed more than $4 million to the Tea Party Patriots.

The group participated in the rally before the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. While the organizers have taken down their website, and many tweets, since the rally led to the mob takeover of the Capitol, Mother Jones and others have reported on the March to Save America, AKA the March for Trump, sponsors.

That contribution of $4.3 million, reported by Chicago's public radio station WBEZ, has led the Democratic Attorney General Association (DAGA) to call on attorneys general and its counterpart the Republican Attorney General Association (RAGA) and Republican attorneys general and candidates to refuse any future contributions from the Uihleins.
