BLM consultant handling messaging for Dem 1st CD candidate Roe

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — Democrat Ann Roe likes to paint herself as a small business moderate in her run to represent the 1st Congressional District.

So why is the candidate using a far left political consulting firm that markets Marxist Black Lives Matter to help introduce her to the voters of the Republican-leaning district?

Roe’s campaign has paid Washington, D.C.-based Fireside Campaigns at least $28,000 for advertising and digital media services, according to federal campaign filings

Fireside, which bills itself as “a majority Queer-owned progressive digital, data, and communications consulting firm operating in the political space,” boasts that one of its clients is the radical Black Lives Matter, the driver of the national Defund the Police movement.

As the Washington Free Beacon first reported this week, Conor Lamb, Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, has paid at least $270,000 to Fireside Campaigns for “communications consulting” and other services. Lamb is running as a self-described “moderate,”  a centrist alternative to liberal lieutenant governor John Fetterman in Pennsylvania’s Democratic Senate primary.

“..(T)he congressman often attempts to distance himself from the movement to defund police. But BLM is at the forefront of that movement. The group—which was cofounded by self-described “trained Marxists”—works to ‘reimagine public safety’ by defunding police and abolishing prisons,” Collin Anderson of the Free Beacon reported.

Roe is one of two candidates running in the Democratic primary for the opportunity to take on incumbent U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil (R-Janesville). She owns an education consulting firm and is president of Downtown Janesville Inc.

In announcing her candidacy last July, Roe described herself as “someone who will work hard and focus on practical solutions that will make a difference for thousands of families in our district and our communities.”

She’s getting messaging help from a liberal consulting firm that is about as far left as they come.

Here’s a recent tweet from Fireside Campaigns:

 

Here’s another:

Fireside’s work with BLM has landed the firm in hot water, the Free Beacon reported.

Last week, Fireside sent a fundraising email on behalf of BLM’s charity, Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. The email asked for contributions to BLM’s political group, Black Lives Matter PAC.

IRS rules, however, prohibit charitable groups from soliciting donations to a political entity, putting Fireside in ‘clear violation’ of the federal agency’s laws, the Washington Examiner reported.

Fireside told the Washington Examiner the BLM PAC refunded all the funds it raised from the charity’s email.

“During an email campaign sent on March 22, 2022, with the subject line ‘Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination,’ Fireside Campaigns inadvertently included a fundraising link for BLM PAC in a nonfundraising email for Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation,” Brad Bauman, Fireside’s managing partner and CEO, told the publication.

  • Hi Matt,

    Vicky McKenna & yourself help Republicans navigate righteous political candidates from Evil lying Democrats and disgusting people like Democrat Tony Evers. I loathe the satanic left.
    I love Ron Johnson and all Republicans in office, except Robin vos who didn’t try to decertify Joe Bidens cheating Wisconsin votes.

    Thank you for being righteous like Jesus of Nazareth

  • The looney left in a hurry to get rid of fossil fuels, yet the have no replacement in place. They also still haven’t explained yet as to what will power certain items that they use everyday!
    They have no plan “B”. Can any of them tell me what will supply the entire power grid as the usage increases everyday??? Can they give us a tour of the new power source., because the amount of wind and solar so far supplied is very little in comparison to the demand. Also remember weather especially cold weather will interrupt their golden egg from supplying us!!
