Despite Smartmatic insisting its employees are “prohibited from making political donations,” Federal Election Commission records reveal employees from the company have sent hundreds of dollars to political campaigns – nearly 86% to Democrats, The National Pulse can reveal.
The company’s recently added “fact check” webpage – which exists to exonerate the company from bias claims – states clearly:
Smartmatic’s founders and employees adhere to a strict ethics code that, among other things, prohibits them from making political donations.”
The claim, which falls under the “Smartmatic’s Credibility is Our Most Important Asset” heading, is easily disproven by Federal Election Commission (FEC) records.
From 2019 to 2020, individuals listing “Smartmatic” as their employer donated to national political campaigns. Of the 28 total donations, 24 were directed to Democratic candidates via ActBlue.
