Entrapment. Bribery. Unauthorized data collection. The allegations against Cambridge Analytica are piling up.
The U.K. data firm took credit for President Donald Trump's election. It's now under fire for using data from a Facebook app
without users' consent. And CEO Alexander Nix was just recorded by undercover Channel 4
reporters suggesting the use of bribes or sex workers as a way to frame political opponents.
Former employee Christopher Wylie played an instrumental role in exposing the company's alleged shady practices. The whistleblower's scheduled to testify in a House committee
soon, revealing his part in illegal and legally ambiguous practices.
Wylie was instrumental in creating the plan to use profiles of millions of Facebook users without their consent to make individually targeted political ads, though he has since admitted
that it was "a grossly unethical experiment because you're playing with the psychology of an entire country without their consent or awareness."Please sign this petition to ensure Wylie is protected for his role in exposing Cambridge Analytica's wrongdoing!
