A bunch of new reports have been released that show two Obama-era officials were at least partially responsible for the misinformation campaign that was launched against GOP candidate Roy Moore’s campaign for governor in the state of Alabama.
Mikey Dickerson, the campaign organizer for former President Obama, played a key role in the disinformation campaign against Moore, along with his partner in crime, Evan Coren, who was part of the National Archives unit since Obama’s first term.
Proof positive that leftists will stoop to any low in order to achieve a political victory.
Coren, for his part, is a progressive activist who handles classified documents for the Department of Energy. He has not responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about the nature of the campaign, which was designed to fool conservatives into believing Moore intended to reimpose prohibition.
Coren and other operatives created a “Dry Alabama” Facebook page with a blunt message attached: Alcohol is evil and should be prohibited, The New York Times reported Monday, citing sources familiar with the matter. The page included images of car wrecks and ruined families, the report notes. Its contents were targeted at business conservatives who are inclined to oppose prohibition.
Two wealthy Virginia donors who wanted to defeat Moore funded the project, according to a person who worked on the project and who spoke on condition of anonymity. The Dry Alabama project was one of two $100,000 campaigns designed to help Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, who barely won the 2017 special election.
Jones previously stated his campaign was unaware of the project and is also calling for an investigation into who is behind the antics. Political analysts believe allegations that Moore sexually assaulted underage women three decades earlier likely played a larger part in his loss. Coren’s false flag operation happened alongside a similar campaign by Dickerson, a former Obama official known for fixing the government’s notoriously glitchy Obamacare website.
Operatives with New Knowledge, a group affiliated with Dickerson, created thousands of Twitter accounts posing as Russian bots to boost the election-year chances of Jones — the accounts began following Moore’s Twitter account in October 2017. The project created a slew of Facebook accounts as well that were designed to troll conservatives into opposing Moore.
The campaign against Moore was rather costly, coming in at $100,000, a bankroll that was funded by liberal billionaire Reid Hoffman. This is the same amount that Facebook says the Russian Internet Research Agency spent on trolling people on social media leading up to the now infamous 2016 presidential election.
It’s sad that we live in a day and age where a person’s policy positions and their ideas for improving the situations of millions of American citizens is no longer the focus of political campaigns.
Now it’s all about who can sling the most mud and uncover the deepest, darkest secrets buried in someone’s closet. Is it any wonder our nation isn’t doing so hot? We’ve abandoned principle for politicians.
