ActBlue is an online fundraising software exclusively shared with Democratic Party candidates, organizations, and affiliated groups to fuel small-dollar donations. 

It became a digital fundraising juggernaut in almost no time at all. Yet its very success has brought heightened scrutiny from Take Back Action Fund, a conservative political group, who’s raising “serious concerns” about millions of donations.


Fox News’ Hollie McKay reports:

A preliminary computer analysis by the Take Back Action Fund, obtained exclusively by Fox News, has found that nearly half of all 2019 donations to ActBlue were made by people claiming to be unemployed.

Action Fund President John Pudner questioned the veracity of those donations and called it a loophole that must be closed for the sake of election integrity.

“After downloading hundreds of millions of [dollars in] donations to the Take Back Action Fund servers, we were shocked to see that almost half of the donations to ActBlue in 2019 claimed to be unemployed individuals,” he said. “The name of employers must be disclosed when making political donations, but more than 4.7 million donations came from people who claimed they did not have an employer. Those 4.7 million donations totaled $346 million ActBlue raised and sent to liberal causes.”

The trend is continuing this year: An Action Fund examination of 2020 data from January through August showed an uptick in “unemployed” donations through ActBlue, to 50.1% this year.

ActBlue vigorously denies the insinuations about the validity of its donations, claiming many come from retirees and people who aren’t counted as employed. Do you think that explanation is reasonable or are you worried that at least some donations could be from foreign adversaries keen to meddle in our election?

After seeing the hullabaloo yesterday…. where Antifa and BLM attempted to execute two police officers, and then lay siege to a HOSPITAL telling folks they would be executed one by one…. not much would surprise me…. especially since Soros happens to fund Antifa, Blm, AND ActBkue….

George Soros and other billionaire activists pump huge amounts of money into the democrat party and their militant groups ( ANTIFA/ BLM). Of course they use backdoor avenues to distribute all this money. It is illegal but we don’t have a DOJ or FBI who will investigate any of it. They are either too timid or are part of the problem. I fear nothing will ever stop the billionaires and they will certainly never be indicted for such crimes.
