Recode Looks at Silicon Valley Donors “Flooding the System” with Cash

August 31, 2018

AUBURN, AL- In what is certainly an interesting read, Recode.net put together a listing of the burgeoning liberal donor class in Silicon Valley. Among the interesting notes are the nuanced ways Silicon Valley donors are looking to leverage their expertise. Some are loaning staff members to left-leaning organizations to improve their use of technology, some are launching new non-profits or tech ventures, and others are taking a significant oversight role over their political “investments.” Perhaps most alarming is the $5.4 […]

August 20, 2018

AUBURN, AL- No organization does more to open the doors for foreign financial influence than liberal donation portal ActBlue. Recently, the group announced that it had collected more than $1 billion in online donations this election cycle. While we acknowledge the legality of their actions (a gaping loophole we are working to fix), the ongoing problem nonetheless puts our democratic process in jeopardy.

June 28, 2018

AUBURN, AL- File this under the header “Well, at least they are trying.” As Facebook bolsters its efforts to eliminate foreign entities from advertising politically, it is finding plenty of challenges. In response to the justified heat over Facebook’s failure to police Russian influence on its platform, the social media site is now requiring those wishing to advertise political messages to verify their identity as an American citizen.

A weak FEC really contributes to filling the swamp, not draining it.

March 16, 2018

More than a year into his presidency, President Trump has shown little interest in beefing up the Federal Election Commission, the agency that could serve as a key player in his avowed agenda to reduce the influence of moneyed interests on politics. So far, Trump has nominated just one new commissioner to fill the two open spots on the panel. He has the opportunity to name an entirely new slate.
