Why aren’t the Democrats protesting this? If Donald Trump had raised and spent this amount of money from anonymous donors, there would be congressional investigations and charges that shadowy figures “stole” the election.
But if you even suggest that the election might have been stolen from Trump, or at least that further investigation is warranted, you get banned from social media.
Had Trump won, there would have been an outcry that the election was stolen and that there was voter suppression. And all of it would have been featured on Twitter and Facebook.
They’d probably be banning people who said the elections WASN’T stolen.
According to Bloomberg News, which gets credit for reporting this:
President Joe Biden benefited from a record-breaking amount of donations from anonymous donors to outside groups backing him, meaning the public will never have a full accounting of who helped him win the White House.
Biden’s winning campaign was backed by $145 million in so-called dark money donations, a type of fundraising Democrats have decried for years. Those fundraising streams augmented Biden’s $1.5 billion haul, in itself a record for a challenger to an incumbent president.
That amount of dark money dwarfs the $28.4 million spent on behalf of his rival, former President Donald Trump. And it tops the previous record of $113 million in anonymous donations backing Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in 2012.
Democrats have said they want to ban dark money as uniquely corrupting, since it allows supporters to quietly back a candidate without scrutiny. Yet in their effort to defeat Trump in 2020, they embraced it.
For example, Priorities USA Action Fund, the super political action committee that Biden designated as his preferred vehicle for outside spending, used $26 million in funds originally donated to its nonprofit arm, called Priorities USA, to back Biden. The donors of that money do not have to be disclosed.
