Parker Thayer appeared on the Ruthless podcast to discuss Everybody Votes, a $100 million voter registration campaign originally proposed by the Wyss Foundation and pushed by John Podesta. In the 2020 election cycle, Everybody Votes essentially functioned as a tax-exempt Democratic political action committee in running a voter registration campaign designed to target predominantly Democratic demographics in battleground states.
Among the campaign’s major donors are many of the usual “dark money” suspects: Hopewell Fund of the Arabella Advisors network, the Tides Foundation and two other Tides entities, ACRONYMN, and the League of Conservation Voters. And the connections only get more interesting.
