The issue with Cambridge Analytica’s involvement in Colorado’s elections will not be solely, as letter-writer Terry Holmes suggests, whether or not their machinations had been efficient or not. (CA clearly appears to assume they had been.)
As The Denver Put up has reported, in 2014 and 2015 Colorado Republican organizations paid CA a whole lot of hundreds of for what we now know had been underhanded companies involving information pilfered from thousands and thousands of voters.
I assume — wouldn’t you? — these Colorado GOP clients of CA (identities hidden) definitely hoped and supposed their cash would pay to sway voters. Does Holmes assume they had been suckered?
In the meantime, didn’t anybody ever odor one thing fishy?
I believe I odor in all this muck an try to undermine American democracy.
And nope, I’m not able to “recover from” that.
