More shady issues from ActBlue were identified over the weekend.
In June 2020 we reported on the Democrats’ funding machine ActBlue and how donations from Black Lives Matter (BLM) were flowing through this entity and handled by radical characters on the left.
We then uncovered that ActBlue was accepting donations from individuals who supposedly are unemployed.
We also uncovered that ActBlue has no means of determining if donations are from foreign or domestic donors. (It’s illegal to accept foreign donations.)
The Daily Caller reported over the weekend that ActBlue is accepting donations but may be misrepresenting their situation.
ActBlue, the fundraising platform that commands a virtual monopoly over Democratic online fundraising, accumulated a cash hoard of at least $172.8 million by the end of 2020 while simultaneously claiming it needs “tips” from donors to keep its lights on.
ActBlue states on its website it asks for “tips” because it does not profit from processing contributions made through its platform, but ActBlue’s credit card processing arm has reported paying taxes on its business profits every year since 2013, IRS records show. From 2013 through 2020, ActBlue’s PAC collected $147.7 million in “tips” from small-dollar Democratic donors, FEC records show.
“If ActBlue’s claims of tips being essential to their operation are in fact false, and donors are making contributions based on those claims, this raises serious legal concerns,” Former National Republican Congressional Committee General Counsel Chris Winkelman told the DCNF.
Finally, as we’ve asked before, why is ActBlue or any entity associated with them given an ‘non-profit’ status? Non-profits are supposed to be non-biased.
