Last week, media mega-corporation Clear Channel, and Norton Outdoor, were forced to remove misleading billboards designed to scare people of color away from the polls. More than 130,000 people including more than 66,000 ColorOfChange members signed a petition to Clear Channel demanding that the billboards be removed, and days later billboards in Ohio and Wisconsin were taken down.
Stephen Einhorn – a Wisconsin venture capital fund manager and major GOP donor – acknowledged Monday that he and his wife Nancy paid for dozens of anonymous billboards in and around Milwaukee and two Ohio cities warning residents of the penalties for committing voter fraud...The Einhorns have made campaign donations to many Republican politicians, including Gov. Scott Walker, to whom they have given $49,750 since 2005, according to the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign.
In addition to funding Wisconsin’s anti-union governor, the Einhorns both made maximum-dollar donations of $2,500 each to Mitt Romney’s presidential election campaign. Both Einhorns also gave to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) in addition to other GOP House and Senate candidates. Stephen donated $25,000 to the tea party group Freedomworks, and Nancy gave $30,800 to the Republican National Committee.
