Happy Birthday, InfluenceWatch!


InfluenceWatch launched three years ago on August 31/September 1, 2017—the guilty responsible parties were probably too tired to note whether it was before or after midnight when InfluenceWatch.org went live.

Since its beginning, InfluenceWatch has grown to more than 7,500 pages and over 2,000 full profiles.
