Anyone here know if this is true? Just talked to Sen. Tillis staffer,

and asked him if it was accurate that Cambridge Analytica helped with his 2014 campaign here in N.C.

Staffer said they were forbidden by Senate rules to discuss campaign matters with anyone.

1. Off the top of my head I doubt there are Senate rules to that effect.

2. Actually, they are forbidden from admitting

associations with sleazy data mining companies that compromise the privacy of Americans.

3. Senator Tillis himself, has a big IT background...

He used to be a 'partner' at IBM so...

5. You might try mailing a letter to his office

with a Freedom of Information /Open Records request for the information. If you do I would send it Certified/Return Receipt Requested.

6. Yep. He was one of the first.

Followed closely by Ted Cruz, is my understanding.

8. Senate rules? Really? Written by top men, no doubt

Would the staffer be so kind as to direct the citizen to the specific Senate rule cited?

9. the Raleigh News observer and WRAL have had a couple of articles on this subject

including how much he paid CA . in fact CA listed the Tillis campaign on their website



Cambridge Analytica now features Tillis' successful campaign to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan as a case study on its website.

"CA Political was contracted to provide modeled data and data analysis on partisanship, turnout, issue importance and personality profile for North Carolina GOP in the race between Republican Thom Tillis and Democrat Kay Hagan," the case study states. "Harnessing our unique data-rich voter file, we were able to accurately predict partisanship, turnout, issue importance and build psychographic profiles for all voters in North Carolina. We produced clusters of voters based on the modeled data to maximize campaign impact, which enabled the creation of tailored messages directed at those audiences."
