Less than two months ahead of the presidential election with concerns of foreign interference again at the forefront a conservative political group is raising "serious concerns" about millions of donations reported by a major Democratic fundraising platform.
A preliminary computer analysis by the Take Back Action Fund, obtained exclusively by Fox News, has found that nearly half of all 2019 donations to ActBlue were made by people claiming to be unemployed.
Action Fund President John Pudner questioned the veracity of those donations and called it a loophole that must be closed for the sake of election integrity.
"After downloading hundreds of millions of [dollars in] donations to the Take Back Action Fund servers, we were shocked to see that almost half of the donations to ActBlue in 2019 claimed to be unemployed individuals," he said. "The name of employers must be disclosed when making political donations, but more than 4.7 million donations came from people who claimed they did not have an employer. Those 4.7 million donations totaled $346 million ActBlue raised and sent to liberal causes."
The trend is continuing this year: An Action Fund examination of 2020 data from January through August showed an uptick in "unemployed" donations through ActBlue, to 50.1% this year...

The Dims dark foreign contributions.
Obama had millions in 2012 and 2016 from AmEx pre-paid cash cards.
Not everyone has an employer. Some of us are self-employed or retired.
it sounds like money laundering, via some activist camp.
I made the mistake of giving my phone number. I don't know how or when but I get a barrage of Republicans begging for money several times a day.
The excuses/reasons are pathetic.
I regret donating now.
One mistake I know I made was, I thought to Trump. But it was made to NRSC.
Now I reply: "wrong number!".
Sorry Mr. President, I love you but I'll never donate again.
Rules are for Republicans. Democrats are untouchable. Until that changes, the chaos will escalate.
Donations to BLM are redirected to ActBlue who in turn donates the monies collected to assorted Democrat campaigns per an article I read recently. Smells BIG time.
No doubt. But how many independent businessmen and assorted self-employed with cash to throw around are Democrats?
(For example, are you a Democrat?)
Soros dark money laundering?
With no intention to cast aspersions on good, hard-working people who needed the $600/wk stipend (CARES Act), then the $400/wk stipend (Trump EO), to help them out during the government-imposed misery, it must be said that there were no conditions on spending imposed on those stipends, as far as I know. So that could explain some of this peculiarity, unfortunately.
Was this Win Red, by any chance. As far as I know, my contributions are going to Trump, but you never can tell.
Simply all money from BLM goes to WHITE LIBERAL CANDIDATES and SOROS backed causes. The information is readily available. Black lives really don’t matter LMAO.
Yes, I want a direct line to Trump to mail him my donation. So many fake ‘need money’ out there. No RNC for sure.
Got mail-in request for ballots today (which has to be there at a certain time.)
I do not want the mail-in vote (which has to be there at a certain time.) We vote in person. What I want to know is IF WE WAIT TO VOTE IN PERSON, WILL BE ALLOWED TOP DO SO! Will there be some panic again to prevent it. *^%$&^$&#@
11s: One magged with SnakeShot. Another with hollow.
Its a very clear comment.
Just like the 0bama 2008 donations.
Weren’t they from foreigners, as it turned out?
No repercussions, for them, though.
I would suggest donors extorted by Jessee Jackson and Al Sharpton.
