And this. How are the Koch Brothers working.
Beacon is intended to open up the RNC voter file to as many new apps and programs want to interface with it. But when campaigns, or worse, state parties, use i360, that is a problem for the RNC, because i360 is more than an app. It has its own voter file. And so every state party that uses i360 is sending out field staffers--paid for with RNC money, funneled through the state parties--to collect data that goes back not to the RNC, but to the Koch-brothers owned subsidiary.
A secretive data and technology company linked to conservative oil billionaires Charles and David Koch has reached an agreement to share its information with the "voter file and data management company" that holds an exclusive agreement with the Republican National Committee. This will allow the Republican Party full access to voter data collected by the Koch's Freedom Partners entities and clients--and entrenches the Kochs' network even deeper into the GOP.
