Austin based firm and Fusion GPS tied to fraudulent campaign practices in Alabama Senate race?

Daily Caller:

  • A non-profit group linked to Fusion GPS has ties to a cybersecurity firm recently implicated in a self-described “false flag” operation in the Alabama Senate race.
  • The Democracy Integrity Project, which works with Fusion GPS and dossier author Christopher Steele, partnered before the 2018 midterms with New Knowledge, an Austin-based firm that has been tied to an operation that created fake Russian bots in Alabama’s December 2017 special election.
  • New Knowledge recently produced a report for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and TDIP’s founder was in contact with two Democrats from the committee.

This is a long piece with several interesting details on the operation designed to defeat Roy Moore's senate campaign in Alabama.  It has been alleged that fake Russian followers were used on Twitter to give the impression that the Russians were supporting Moore.  There was also a fake group set up suggesting his supporters favored alcohol prohibition.

Since some of the activity took place in Austin, the Texas Attorney General should investigate the firm to determine whether it was engaging in fraudulent business practices.
