@salixlucida That database is managed by Tableau, which was bought by Salesforce. Salesforce conveniently left itself off that list. It is one of the most evil offenders.
@salixlucida There's already ample evidence that it was actively involved in increasing the use of private "for profit" prisons.
It's also an #OpenFact that Salesforce was knowingly involved in sex trafficking.
"“The evidence in this case is astounding,” the lawyer for the plaintiffs, Annie McAdams, told Rolling Stone. “[Salesforce] knew who Backpage was, yet they continued to take Backpage’s money, and they helped Backpage become a $500 million company that openly prostituted people.”"
So where does Salesforce show up on that site? How was it contracting with the government? Where is its accountability? The laws say that taxpayers' government funds must be public, disclosed openly.
Somebody should tell Salesforce that murdering "suicide" Jeffrey Epstein still doesn't get them out of their own mess.
Local election officials are not entitled to confidentiality. You ought not defy the Constitution in a state that is part of a national election.
“I believe that this lack of transparency is counterproductive,” said U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy. "I’m concerned that it could erode public confidence in our election systems as well as our democracy.”
“It’s self-defeating to be given incomplete information and then be required to remain silent about the few facts we do know,” Murphy said.
The piece contained further sharp warnings about election security in 2020:
“If we can’t form a clear picture of past election interference efforts, we won’t learn how best to fend off future attacks,” Murphy wrote.
It made the case for transparency in the area of election security:
“Why have the details of this foreign attack on our democracy been shrouded in secrecy?” Murphy wrote. “Federal law enforcement agencies view local election officials whose networks were targeted as victims entitled to confidentiality. I believe the victims are the voters.”
There are plenty of things that are no match for the Internet:
