REPORT: Michael Cohen Admits He Paid to Rig Drudge Polls — SO DID TED CRUZ CAMPAIGN
Former Trump Attorney Michael Cohen says he paid off John Guager from Liberty University to rig the Drudge Report polls in the 2016 primary.
Online rigged polls is nothing new in politics.
Democrats are masters of this tactic and are notorious for using bogus polling to stifle voter turnout.
Trump should probably hire Mr. Guager in 2020.
He gets results.
It should also be noted that ALL OF THE VOTER ENTHUSIASM was with Trump in 2016.
This is not a surprise.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
In early 2015, a man who runs a small technology company showed up at Trump Tower to collect $50,000 for having helped Michael Cohen, then Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, try to rig online polls in his boss’s favor before the presidential campaign.
In his Trump Organization office, Mr. Cohen surprised the man, John Gauger, by giving him a blue Walmart bag containing between $12,000 and $13,000 in cash and, randomly, a boxing glove that Mr. Cohen said had been worn by a Brazilian mixed-martial arts fighter, Mr. Gauger said.
Mr. Cohen disputed that he handed over a bag of cash. “All monies paid to Mr. Gauger were by check,” he said, offering no further comment on his ties to the consultant.
Mr. Gauger owns RedFinch Solutions LLC and is chief information officer at Liberty University in Virginia, where Jerry Falwell Jr., an evangelical leader and fervent Trump supporter, is president.
For the record –The Cruz campaign also spammed the Drudge primary polls.
A Cruz supporter spammed the Drudge Report during the CNN GOP Debate in March 2016 to rig the popular website’s online poll.
All of the Cruz spam came from Delaware.
Matt Drudge tweeted this out late last night.

Here’s a look at the numbers early Thursday night during the debate before the cheating was discovered.
By Friday morning the numbers were corrected and Donald Trump was the clear winner.
