I have a list of twenty one accounts that are leaders within @UniteBlue, at least in terms of Twitter conversations. … I extracted 53,000 [of their] tweets. …

The @UniteBlue operation is the work of @140elect, who were taking funding from Sheldon Adelson for campaigns on behalf of Tea Party candidates recently … Their Democratic front man and initial source of [Democratic/liberal] legitimacy was William Talley, who … [has] a conviction for child pornography possession…

[Talley] paid … for a video of a preschooler being sexually assaulted, and this was just one of a great number of of such things found on his computers.

The owners of @140elect have no Democratic cred of their own and having used Talley’s network to start the operation I do not see how they can possibly continue in any sort of credible fashion. The masses who signed up for this are clearly actual Democrats and others familiar with the situation have summed [these actual Dems] up as “Hillary’s primary voters” – more female than male, closer to retirement…

[For] the defense of Talley and [UniteBlue,] a number of the large-volume [of tweets, etc.]/large-follower-count actors have applied tactics right out of the Tea Party playbook. … I’d be curious to see what their voter registrations look like over the last twelve years.
