Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway and Long Island billionaire Robert Mercer launched a group called Reclaim New York even before they helped put Donald Trump in the White House. Mercer’s daughter Rebekah, also a conservative powerhouse, is active in setting policy.
Reclaim people say Bannon and Conway are no longer involved. They insist the group is a nonpartisan good-government watchdog that should be judged on its work, not its board members. But records show their staff are all the same political persuasion as their founders.
