CRC in the News: ‘Nonpartisan’ Voter Registration Org Is Actually A Dem Get Out The Vote Machine, Report Says

An Exclusive at the Daily Caller featuring CRC Research

Last week, Jason Cohen of the Daily Caller News Foundation featured research from CRC’s Parker Thayer in an exclusive article exposing the use of charitable organizations for political purposes.

Cohen writes:

  • A group styling itself as a “nonpartisan” organization strived to assist Democrats in triumphing in elections in 2020, according to a new report by watchdog group Capital Research Center (CRC) exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. 
  • Despite VRP’s “nonpartisan” status, it has strategically geared its activities towards securing election wins for Democrats by focusing on specific demographics, CRC claims. 
  • “Encouraging qualified voters to exercise their right to vote is a noble purpose, served by legitimate nonpartisan, nonprofit organizations, and community leaders around the country,” Lawyers Democracy Fund Executive Director Lisa Dixon, who was not involved in CRC’s report, told the DCNF. “But when supposedly nonpartisan organizations conduct get-out-the-vote efforts in a manner that seems designed to benefit one political party, voters are rightly skeptical of how fair and nonpartisan such efforts are.”
