A donor has sued a Pro-Trump group for $2.5 million over “empty promises” after he says it failed to prove voter fraud in the 2020 election.
Fred Eshelman sued Houston-based True the Vote Inc., which promised to “investigate, litigate and expose suspected illegal balloting ad fraud in the 2020 general election,” Bloomberg reported.
Eshelman, founder of Eshelman Ventures LLC, claimed that he “regularly and repeatedly” asked for updates on the initiative, but was met with “vague responses, platitudes, and empty promises.”
True the Vote’s said its efforts included filing lawsuits in several swing states, collecting whistleblower complaints, increasing GOP legislative support in key states and conducting “sophisticated data modeling and statistical analysis to identify potential illegal or fraudulent balloting,” according to the suit in Houston federal court.
Eshelman decided to wire True the Vote $2 million on Nov. 5 and another $500,000 a week later after the group’s president said more money would be needed to achieve their goals, according to the suit. He asked for his money to be returned after the group failed to provide reports on its progress, saying it became obvious the group would not be able to execute its plan.

What’s that saying… “A fool and his money are soon parted?”
I never understood why people give such huge money to PACs. I can understand people donating small amounts to an upstart candidate they support running for congress, or to candidates in a presidential primary….because usually those type of donations from a combined number of people can make a difference. But the Super PACs begin to soar out of control with money. And donating big money to them really is a waste unless you are some high roller with stakes in the game.
