I wish I could remember the links where I realised that the whole Open Internet movement is a con.. Just throwing down some quick links here for future development...Anyway... they'll eventually out themselves as is happening here with the Represent.Us group:
Unbreaking America: A NEW Short Film about Solving the Corruption Crisis
Gil Fulbright is a satirical presidential candidate created by RepresentUs designed to bring attention to corruption. Played by actor Frank Ridley, Gil ran a fake Senate campaign in Kentucky in 2014. In 2016, the character announced a run for president of the United States.
Gil Fulbright's presidential launch video garnered over 1 million views in less than 24 hours. Fulbright went on to beat several real candidates in a 2016 presidential straw poll, and out-fundraised Democratic presidential candidate Lincoln Chafee
Lincoln Chafee is the son of Skull and Bones man John Chafee ... see : https://voat.co/v/pizzagatewhatever/3179708/18287519
Josh Silver (born April 16, 1968) is the co-founder and director of RepresentUs, a post-partisan, nonprofit organization whose stated mission is to build the movement that fixes America's corrupt political system. Silver formerly served as CEO and co-founder of Free Press, an "activist group that promotes accountability journalism and Internet openness." He served as the director of development for a cultural arm of the Smithsonian Institution, and was the campaign manager of the successful 1998 "Clean Elections" ballot measure in Arizona.
The so-called non-partisan organisation works with the Sunlight Foundation: https://sunlightfoundation.com/2015/07/06/opengov-voices-10-years-of-shining-a-light-on-money-in-politics-with-maplight/
MapLight, a nonpartisan nonprofit I co-founded to track money’s influence on politics, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. It’s been an incredible decade of growth for us and the broader transparency and accountability field.
MapLight’s success emerges within a wider system of data partners, advocacy groups and media outlets collaborating to improve government.
Sourcing data from the Center for Responsive Politics, the National Institute of Money in State Politics and GovTrack made it possible to build our groundbreaking database connecting the money donors give to legislative outcomes, enabling us to meet the daily data needs of the money and politics movement. Key change-makers including Every Voice, Represent.us, Common Cause and Demos regularly use our data to advance money and politics reform.

Summary: The Sunlight Foundation is yet another nonprofit that preens itself on its political neutrality but turns out to have leaders and funding almost entirely from the left. “Transparency” is its battle cry, and it has an impressive array of projects underway. And yet it never seems troubled by groups on the left that revel in political intimidation, and its leaders have included the kind of “progressives” who find liberal Democrats too conservative.
