Left wing actress Alyssa Milano has reportedly been linked to a “dark money” political organization that is working to rebrand Democrats as moderates.
Future Majority, a $60 million political group launched by Democratic operatives during the 2018 midterm elections, 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,” according to a report by Politico.
Although the nonprofit organization has not been publicized before now, it has been working on its strategies for months, using advertising, videos and getting well-known personalities like Milano to share content on social media.
The Democratic National Committee, which normally would have assumed the role of promoting the party’s ideology, now has a “smaller footprint” heading into the 2020 election cycle, according to Politico.
Information about funding sources and how money is allocated has not been revealed by the group.
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 pic.twitter.com/jDOBCs2u2w

The organization’s executive director, Mark Riddle, noted how the aim is to project the Democrat Party as being about values like “freedom” and “opportunity” with a target on Republican-leaning Midwestern states.
“It’s no great secret that the presidential race will be won or lost in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio — if we can win back the narrative that the word ‘Democrat’ equals people who are fighting for folks who work hard every day, we can continue to win elections,” Riddle said. “If [Democrats] get defined as being about socialism and these other words people can hear about out of Washington, then I worry.”
The organization’s YouTube account released a video last month featuring Milano urging voters to support HR1 – the For the People Act of 2019 which, she noted ironically, calls for Super PACs and dark money groups to disclose their donors.

And perhaps Milano’s vigorous defense of former Vice President and 2020 Democratic contender is better understood in light of the connection with Future Majority. She defended him again over allegations of inappropriate behavior toward women during an appearance on MSNBC.

Milano also revealed that the blatant goal of all Democrats heading in to the 2020 election is to beat Trump, not offer Americans solutions to issues they care about.
This is exactly how Trump gets another four years.

The liberal actress interviewed Biden in an episode of her newly launched podcast series, “Sorry Not Sorry” which is focused on social, political and cultural issues, according to Deadline.
This is unlike any other primary. This isn’t a sports team we are rooting for here. The democracy of our country is at stake. Do your homework. Listen to your heart, the American people & their needs & vote in the primary. Unity is the only way forward.

Milano’s “dark money” connection raised plenty of eyebrows on Twitter.
Alyssa Milano is bought and paid for by dark money. This explains her hypocritical support of creepy Joe Biden.

How much dark money does the Future Majority group pay you? Is it enough to pay the taxes you haven’t?

After finding no collusion, The left is worried about Trumps taxes now. The wave, scream and point for us to look at Trump, all the while hiding their own deeper, darker corruption behind their backs, hoping “We the People” do not notice.

Is this being funded by the Dark Money group with whom you work?

An elitist snob too self-absorbed & complacent to actually interest herself with what the American People want, but is a puppet of the elite establishment being used to force more nicely composed propaganda down people’s throats, instead of taking time to listen to what we want.
