One Of Uniteblue’s Operators Isn’t Very “Blue” At All

Adam and Zach Green run Uniteblue. As it turns out, Adam isn’t very blue at all. Well, according to their own “BlueRank” algorithm he isn’t.

What value does Uniteblue’s algorithm calculate for Mr. Adam Green?

68.7. Sixty-eight point seven. In college exam parlance: a D+.

Why any liberal would join a group run by a guy who worked for the tea party and is a “below average” liberal by his own calculation is beyond us.

BREAKING: “BlueRank” Formula Adjusted?! Stop the Presses!

Speaking of “BlueRank”: Uniteblue is designed to appear legitimate and useful, while siphoning off time and money better spent on legitimate progressive causes and candidates. The silly “Blue Rank” is part of the illusion.

The truth? They’re making it up as they go. Zach Green recently tweeted this gem from his “Stronger Together” account:

BlueRankAdjusted

So follow more verified Uniteblue members to raise your meaningless BlueRank! Or take our advice: ignore it completely.

A guy who was raising money for Herman Cain 1 1/2 years ago isn’t qualified to grade how liberal you are. Period.

Zach Green Did “Work For” The Tea Party

We found this on twitter on July 7, 2013:

ZachGreenLyingAboutNotWorkingForTeaParty

Here is the link to this message, which was a Twitter DM (direct message) to this twitter user.

Really now. Let’s look at some facts then. There are bits & pieces of proof across the internet that his firm produced the so-called first-ever Presidential debate on twitter: the “TEA PARTY Town Hall” sponsored by theteaparty.net in 2011. That’s a BIG WHOLE BUNCH of tea party candidates right there. And don’t forget he raised money for Herman Cain, while attacking President Obama and Democrats along the way. Yes, much was deleted, BUT NOT ALL. After all, this is the internet.

Here is what Topsy reveals about the (erased) @140townhall twitter account:

That cartoon eagle looks familiar doesn’t it? By the way, “@140elect” is Zach Green’s twitter account & Andrew Hemingway is a tea Party activist and the New Hampshire Republican Liberty Caucus chairman.

Here is a link to a National Journal article that explicitly states the Tea Party Townhall was “a joint project between 140Elect and Digital Acumen.” Andrew Hemingway is the managing director of Digital Acumen.

Here is a link to an article by Dave Weigel explaining that 140elect produced the Tea Party Townhall, which he incidentally described as a complete failure. Apparently big enough to convince Zach to switch sides?

And here is the New York Times blog post mentioning Zach Green specifically as producing the platform that was used for the Tea Party event.

Here is proof his firm (and his father, who is the only other member of Uniteblue’s board of directors) created a twitter account and website that voluntarily raised money for the Herman Cain campaign.

There is more. Much more. Surely “worked for” includes producing tea party events and raising money for a tea party candidate?

So, Mr. Green, whether you were paid or volunteered, you did “work for” Tea Party candidates. #pantsonfire
