HOLY WOW! Alyssa Milano’s reported ties to ‘dark money’ political org explain SO MUCH (and NONE of it’s good)

Alyssa Milano has become a familiar face in political circles, much to our chagrin. 
A group of Democratic operatives are launching a $60 million political group with plans to reclaim values-laden terms like “freedom” and “opportunity” for their party ahead of the 2020 election.
The nonprofit organization, called Future Majority, plans to provide strategic advice to other Democratic groups, as well as branding efforts, communications and a “war room” that will debunk fake news and counter conservative social media. The group quietly soft-launched during the 2018 midterms and advised organizations including the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on how to message to voters.
But wait, there’s more.
Future Majority’s formation also highlights tensions within the Democratic Party over how to navigate money in politics in the 2020 election. The group will spend money through PACs but is initially organized as a 501(c)(4) political nonprofit — known to critics, including many Democrats, as “dark money,” with no disclosure of donors and limited disclosure of how money is spent.

You can read the entire article here, but Future Majority was part of the 2018 Congressional cycle that vaulted dozens of “moderate” Dems. /2https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/29/democrats-money-future-majority-1291388

As the article notes Future Majority is a classic “dark money” organization. This should be relentlessly hammered on given the Democrats rhetoric on campaign finance. /3

Huh, we thought ‘dark money’ was a bad thing.
Who knew?
They are trying to “round out the message” as they did in 2018 & reclaim words like “freedom” and “opportunity” for the Democrats. Of course they want Biden. He is the only one not running in Bernie’s lane. /4

Which is probably why Alyssa was working overtime to convince everyone Joe’s ‘touchy-feely affections’ aren’t super creepy
Further, and thanks to McCain-Fiengold, this is further evidence the c4’s have taken over the Democrat party. The DNC (the actual party) is actually stepping aside to let donor funded orgs set the strategy. /5

Color us shocked.
Ok, not really.
The upside of all of this is these groups compete with one another & LOVE to talk about exactly what they are going to do. The @RNC & @GOPChairwoman must use this to their advantage. If they need help, my browser bookmarks are FULL of things they put on the interwebz. /end

Sounds like Alyssa may have some ‘splainin’ to do.
