Following new revelations last week that Florida, Missouri, and West Virginia would be nixing the leftist-controlled Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) from their states, Democrats and the corporate media alike have jumped to suggest such worries are conspiracy theories.
The first two states to terminate the use of ERIC this year were Louisiana and Alabama.
As was noted by The Federalist, ERIC is a leftist-controlled organization that runs partisan voter outreach campaigns while claiming it simply maintains the voter rolls. The group was started by far-left political activist David Becker, who also formed the Center for Election Innovation and Research, a group that helped redirect $419 million from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg into various voting campaigns which aimed to turnout Democrats by predominantly targeting blue counties of swing states during the 2020 election.
Since the pullout of the aforementioned states, mainstream media outlets including The New York Times and Associated Press have blasted them as conspiracy theorists, running various blatantly biased stories with titles such as, “G.O.P. States Abandon Bipartisan Voting Integrity Group, Yielding to Conspiracy Theories” and “Election conspiracies fuel dispute over voter fraud system.”
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson joined in on the dogpile, claiming of the states who ditched the leftist-tied organization, “Their leaving directly harms the security and integrity of their own state voter rolls and their ability to keep them up to date and accurate.”
The Federalist noted that Benson is currently facing a lawsuit for declining to nix almost 26,000 dead people from her state’s voter rolls.
Associated Press acknowledged that ERIC was notably funded by Hungarian billionaire investor George Soros, who, among other things, has infamously funneled tens of millions of dollars into the races of numerous far-left district attorneys around the country.
Many Americans are not a fan of Soros’ practices, as was pointed out by CBS host Steve Kroft in a 1998 broadcast of 60 Minutes. After being asked if he is as “powerful” as some claim he is, Soros responded that there has been a “misunderstanding,” and that his chief goal is to make money.
“I cannot and do not look at the social consequences of what I do,” he said at the time, adding, “as a competitor, I’ve go to compete to win.”

Soros characterized himself as a person who has been known to engage in amoral activities but tries to be moral at other times.
