It is Already Clear That Lefty Valley is Going to Have Major Influence in a Biden Administration

Will Lefty Valley have a significant influence in a Biden administration if Joe Biden prevails in the election and is sworn in on January 20? Initial Biden moves suggest it will be the case.

He has already hired both Jessica Hertz, former associate general counsel at Facebook, and Cynthia Hogan, former Apple vice-president for government affairs, to his transition team. Eric Schmidt, the former Google chief executive, has been a big fundraiser, and is being talked about to lead a new technology industry task force in the White Hous, reports the Financial Times.

Also, FT notes that Kamala Harris has long been supported by the likes of Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and Salesforce’s Marc Benioff. Her brother-in-law and former chief of staff, Tony West, is Uber’s chief legal officer.

And this from FT:

A senior executive at one major technology company said Mr Biden “has lots of friends in the industry — it is a world he feels very comfortable with”.



  1. Not that anyone needed more evidence but, the connection between Lefty Valley and the Biden campaign/administration is further evidence that the October purge of alternative media producers was political and anti-Trump. Big tech sees the Trump deplorables and us who are freedom oriented as breaks on their acceleration to their all powerful technocratic panopticon.
