A front group is an advocacy organization founded or funded secretly by another group. It hides or at least downplays the degree of control its sponsoring body wields over it. In U.S. history, many leftist organizations have spawned front groups. For example, ExxonSecrets is a project of Greenpeace, the radical environmental group that seeks to ban all or nearly all logging, mining, and cars and trucks in the U.S. [1]
