The 1776 Project PAC Money Airdrop

Among the thousands of various local government positions up for grabs, nearly 400,000 students are at risk of having their school boards turned upside-down by one political action committee. Don’t believe me? Let’s follow the money.

About This Episode

Take 15 minutes out of your day and listen to this story: A political action committee out of New York, started by a guy born and raised in New York City, has taken hundreds of thousands of donations from baby boomer retirees and funneled that money into airdrop get-out-the-vote campaigns in half a dozen states where neither the PAC nor any of the donors actually live. As part of an ongoing effort to nationalize and make partisan more and more of our civic government.

Sensationalism? I wish so, but not really.
