Cambridge Analytica

Axios reports:

“A 4-month undercover investigation conducted by the UK’s Channel 4 News revealed that Cambridge Analytica says it has secretly campaigned in more than 200 elections around the world, using shady tactics that include bribery and prostitution in order to entrap politicians in compromising situations. The company says they “entirely refute” the allegations.

“Why it matters: Cambridge Analytica worked for Donald Trump’s campaign during the 2016 presidential elections, and is at the center of a controversy for its role in harvesting data from more than 50 million Facebook profiles. Facebook announced Monday that it has hired a digital forensics firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of the company.”

These are the guys who stole data from Facebook and (probably) gave Candidate Stupid his Electoral College win.

    Here’s a Channel 4 piece on the former head of research of C.A., who suffered an attack of conscience and has now been banned from Facebook. 16 minutes and must-see.

    If they had paid up front they would have been given the data and a Starbucks card.

    Well, we can stop debating “collusion” now and recognize that the Trump scampaign was and continues to be an international criminal conspiracy.

    They didn’t “steal” anything. They effectively used the tools available to them to satisfy the contract they entered into. It’s just business. They didn’t do anything the banks haven’t been doing since Y2K, Obama in oh-twelve or Clinton in the Goat Rodeo. No sympathy, they all downloaded the app, they all “joined” Zuckerberg’s Famous Pig, all clicked on (((accept))) without reading the fine print.
