Organizing for Action, the non-profit social welfare group advocating for President Obama’s second term agenda, has cut its first-year fundraising goal of $50 million in half, the Washington Post reported.

Formed in January of 2013, the organization’s statement of purpose reads that it was “established to support President Obama in achieving enactment of the national agenda Americans voted for on Election Day 2012 … including gun violence prevention, sensible environmental policies to address climate change and immigration reform.”

The organization, led by former Obama advisors, has been accused of selling access to the president, including a New York Times report detailing that donations of $500,000 land donors on a “national advisory board.”
