A new Facebook whistleblower who is being promoted by liberal media, Frances Haugen, has a history of sending money to far-left Dems and a track record of raising concern about supposed bias while at past companies, a recent review discovered. She is now partnering with Dem operatives to bring out her complaint and even has the same attorneys as the anonymous “whistleblower” whose accusations led to Trump’s impeachment, but who then ended up being then-VP Biden’s top advisor on the nation.
In a past role at the Pinterest company, Frances Haugen was behind a “new change to allow users the ability to filter searches on specific skin tones.” Also at Gigster, she gave a talk about on how “if we don’t work with an eye on inclusion, we will end up enshrining bias.”
Back in 2015, she accused Google of not being inclusive of women, saying: “I did not realize how I had been worn out by being a woman in the tech industry… the last Google team I was on had a trans director, and we had more trans women than cis women in our team, which also speaks to the number of women who are in tech.”
Haugen has made over twenty federal contributions to political campaigns since 2016, all of which went to the Democrats, according to FEC data. On Jan. 13th, 2020, Haugen sent funds to AOC’s campaign and another contribution to her “Courage to Change” Committee. One of the top recipients of her funds was the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The Senate invited her to to give testimony on Tuesday to discuss her complaints, which consisted in part of saying that Facebook does not censor enough conservative speech. She states that she was motivated to action after a friend was “radicalized” by “misinformation.”
Despite having funds for donations, back in Jan. 2020, Haugen had a $44,000 tax lien put on her for unpaid taxes, according to public records. The lien was undone on May 17, 2021.
Her lawyers are now trying to raise $50,000 via GoFundMe, money they will use to cover legal expenses for the lawyers, who are otherwise working for free.
Those attorneys are Whistleblower Aid, a group created by Mark Zaid, who had represented the official who said that Trump had inappropriately pressed the president of Ukraine on a call to, in turn, investigate whether Biden inappropriately pushed the nation to drop an investigation into Burisma.
