The East Bay Times is reporting that when the initiative proponents were drafting the measure they “reached out to Facebook to try to enlist its support…We were … disappointed to learn that on February 27, 2018, Facebook joined Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, and Google, to contribute over $1 million to a political action committee you set up to oppose the measure.”

Californians for Consumer Privacy, say they have not heard back from Facebook. Google has remained silent as well.

High level Democrat operative Steven Maviglio is a key part of the opposition team. So you can be sure the entire California Democratic Party is squarely on the side of the Silicon Valley tech giants. After all, that’s where the political money is.
